Nothing is more comforting than going home after being away.
The defining qualities of home make all the difference.
Home is special because we belong, we are members of a family or household.
Spiritually, the church is where we belong, where we are members of God’s family. Perhaps this is why the Bible speaks of the eternal dwelling God has prepared for us.
While on earth, the church should provide the same comforts of home.
Opposite of the corporate body, often connected to the church, leaders need to encourage and strengthen the idea of the church as family…home.
