Determine to become a Five-Star Christian:

 

A great church is made up of strong Christians and strong Christian families.

 

Read God's Word
Reading the Bible is vitally important to the Christian life.  The Bible says, "Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God."  One great way to increase our faith is to spend time reading, studying, and listening to the preaching of God's Word.  As we read the Bible, we should search the Scriptures, comparing Scripture with Scripture.  Also, set a goal to memorize Scripture and meditate on the Word of God.  In our personal lives and together with our families each day, we need to be reading the Word of God.

 

Pray
We believe that God hears and answers prayer.  There is no doubt about it, the greatest untapped resource in the Christian life is the matter of prayer.  Pray each day.  Pray for God's power and wisdom and guidance in every area of your life.  Pray for family and friends.  Pray for the pastor and his family.  Pray for your church.  Pray for our nation.  Pray for the lost.  Establish a prayer list.  Learn to pray.  God says in His Word, "Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not."  God loves you intimately and He wants to spend time alone with you in prayer each and every day.

 

Attend Church Faithfully
The Lord Jesus Christ deserves your faithfulness.  Strive to attend every service of the church.  A great deal of the strength of the church is based on the faithfulness of the people.  God wants the local church to be an important part of your life.  Being a faithful member of the church allows you to identify yourself with the Lord and His people, receive instruction for living the Christian life, find God's will in a place of service, be encouraged and encourage others, make good friends, strengthen your home, and know the joy of being part of a church family that truly loves one another.

 

Give
God's work is to be supported God's way.  The Bible teaches that we should pay the tithe and give our offerings.  Practice tithing as a conviction.  Bring the Lord's tithe with you to church each Sunday.  Support the ministries of the church with offerings.  By faith give to world missions.  Support the Christian education endeavors of the church.  We cannot outgive God.  The Bible says, "Give, and it shall be given unto you."  God's Word also says, "...God loveth a cheerful giver."  The grace of God is our greatest motivation in giving.  When we consider how our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ gave everything for us, we understand the goodness and grace and love of our God.  The Bible says, "We love Him because He first loved us."  We give to prove the sincerity of our love for Him. 

 

Witness to the Lost
Our Lord Jesus Christ came to seek and to save that which was lost.  He left us on earth to tell others about the Saviour.  Determine to bring others to the Saviour.  Work to bring other families to Christ and to the church.  Set a time to go.  Get involved in a church outreach ministry.  Make a list of names and addresses of people you want to reach for Christ and begin to pray for them.  As long as we live, we are to be representatives of Heaven here upon this earth.  We are called to be ambassadors of Jesus Christ.   

 

Don't be satisfied with just being average!

This is a time when you can be a real help and encouragement to your pastor.  May God help you to work together to see something beyond the ordinary accomplished for Christ through your church.  Oftentimes we like to think about what a church can do for us, but we also need to stop and think about what we can do for our church.  There's a special place of service and friendship just for you at Gospel Light!
