I'm in the process of finding a new church to attend. It is a hard process and a long one. It is hard to wake up on Sunday morning and want to walk into a building where you don't know anyone. But it is important to get fed. And I believe it is important to be in fellowship with other believers. So I have to admit...I haven't been good about going to church lately. My fear of being the "unknown" person has held me back. A friend sent me a link to the following sermon and it is a good one. I went to Bethlehem once back in May and haven't made it back again, but now I'm more drawn in after hearing this sermon.
One of the things that stuck out to me was: "No supplements are needed when you are in Christ. Bad theology is thinking we have Christ and that we need something else too." It really stood out to me as I seek to completely find my identity in Christ. So often I think that I need (not just want) something or really, someone to make my life better and more complete. But really, I don't. Christ gives me all I need.
