Podcast Episode #548
Church members who are determined to be unifying can change the entire ethos of a church, and a church with unifying church members is a blessing to a pastor.
Some highlights from today’s episode include:
- Be intentional about prayer and about what you’re praying for.
- Words of encouragement for your pastor really mean a lot because pastors hear more criticism than you can imagine.
- Giving abundantly has more to do with the attitude of the giver than the amount of the gift.
- Gossip in the church is unhealthy and can hurt the ministry and witness of a church.
The seven ways to be a unifying church member that we discuss are:
- Pray for the church
- Encourage the pastor and staff
- Encourage other church members
- Give abundantly
- Don’t gossip
- Forgive others
- Serve joyfully

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
