What is a bench Warming Christian? That’s a person who goes to church because it looks good or to get away from the kids. It doesn’t mean they are not good Christians. It just means that when they are there they are not engaging with Christ. a group of Christians is a body. Basically, we are a family. When you go to church you should be inspired, comforted, and encouraged. Leave the outside world and your baggage at the door. Just like in Star Track, lower your shields and let yourself feel the presence of Jesus. You won’t feel a thing if you have your Shields up.
Check these out: Hebrews 10:25, Ephesians 4:12, 1 Corinthians 12:12, 1 Corinthians 12:27
There is no substitute for physically going to church and feeling the warmth of God’s presence in the hug of a fellow Christian. If you can’t go, don’t worry. get in your bible, read a devotional, watch a preacher. My favorites are Joel Olsteen and Joseph Prince. God can still talk directly to you through them. Don’t go a single day without Jesus. Every day you will get stronger, feel more peace, love and hope.
Prayer: “Lord, it is hard for me go to church. I feel like I am being judged. Help us not to lose hope, help us find a church family who will open their arms to me a sinner. Give me the strength and courage to walk into that church. Until that time, help me to stay focused on you. Put people in my path to lead me and guide me to the place you want me to be. In Jesus name. Amen”
Don’t lose hope, there is the perfect place for you. Be patient and keep trying. Don’t judge others as they have judged you. If you are not sure what to read or study in your bible in the meantime, tune in here with me and we can work through it together.
You are on a journey that will change your world! God bless and be encouraged.
Smile Jesus loves you!!
