Can You Say the Same Thing?

November 1, 2017

“I have a place here,” he began.

Mr. Bonds Robinson was in our pulpit briefly this past Sunday in his choir robe, sharing his testimony.

He’d already knocked me outa my pew with “I have a place here.” One of the five primary reasons people are active in a local United Methodist Church, according to my research and dissertation, is that they’re part of a group within the larger congregation. Or, as Mr. Robinson said so well, “I have a place here.”

But he didn’t stop there.

“I have a place here, and I am loved here.”

Why bother being part of a church? Listen again to just one sentence from Mr. Robinson’s testimony: “I have a place here, and I am loved here.”

Three questions:

  1. Can you say the same thing? If not, please contact me…I’d love to help you find a caring church…so stop reading and hit me up right now online or any of the usual ways.
  2. If you can say the same thing as Bonds did, who can you invite in with you, so that they can “have a place” and “be loved” as well?
  3. If you can say the same thing as he did, what are you doing this week to help someone else know that they “have a place” and are “loved” in your church?

See you back here tomorrow.
