In the closing moments of my message - I shared these comments form my manuscript:
We have built memorials in the church:
a. Communion: Remembering the sacrifice of Jesus Christ – His shed blood, death, burial and Resurrection.
b. Baptism – Displaying the inward work and cleansing of God in our life by the outward expression of baptism by water.
c. Church Membership – Standing before others stating that we agree in doctrine and make a commitment to support the ministry of the local church.
We need to build personal memorials: Here are some practical ways….
1. Church Attendance – displays our priorities in life and commitment to God
2. Tithing – Showing God has first place in our life and with our finances.
3. Prayer in the home (meals; bedtime; family devotions (praying with others)
This is being intentional in Practicing the Presence of God.
"You also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ." I Peter 2:5
"You are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men:"
2 Corinthians 3:2
Remember the faithfulness of God to you – BUILD A MEMORIAL!
