1. You must be a devoted member yourself.
- Nehemiah 2:1-5 Nehemiah looked sad while he was at work. The king was surprised because Nehemiah was always cheerful.
- We need to overcome the obstacles we face on Sunday mornings and attend church every Sunday.
The Three Stages Of a Church Member:
1. The Deer Stage:
- deer like to walk away and hide when they see a human approaching.
2. The Goat Stage:
- goats are usually strong-willed and do not take direction from the shepherd.
3. The Sheep Stage:
- sheep always stay together and are easily guided.
- The Bible describes us as the sheep of His pasture. Psalm 100:3
- We need to become like sheep. Psalm 23
- When we allow God and the Pastors to lead us, we will be blessed.
