Today in the 40 Day Devotional series, we read…

Day 36 Look for God Among You

Read 1 Corinthians 14:24-25

“And as a result he will fall facedown and worship God, proclaiming, ‘God is really among you.’” 1 Corinthians 14:25 (HCSB)

What would you say is the most important thing about your church?

For many people the answer would be this church meets my spiritual, emotional, or relational needs. As you think about your church, who are some of the people that have or are making a difference in your life? What are some of the ministries of your church that deepen your relationship to the Lord?

In my current role, I attend many different churches over the course of a month. I notice some churches are very outward to visitors while others have a harder time approaching strangers.

In the text we read today, we find what I think is the best response to the question “What do you say is important to this church?” First, an unbeliever discovers the truth about a Savior, next accepts Jesus, and finally shouts “God is really among you!” How great if this could be said about every church in our land.

In a healthy church it is easy to see that God is the center of that church.

Prayer

Pray for God to show you how He is moving in your church. Ask God to help you reflect His presence to a lost world.
