Just thinking..

Read this on a blog and thought it was beautiful. I’ve been thinking alot lately about how the Lord Jesus intended his church (aka the people who know and love him) to function as a body of believers, and this spoke to me in its simplicity.

“If you’re looking for the 9 marks of a healthy church you can start by looking for the marks on their knees from prayer, the marks on their hands from service, the marks on their Bible from persistent study, the marks of their past where the Lord has corrected them, the marks they have made on the lives of those they come into contact with, the mark of humility, the mark of joy and the mark of peace that comes from walking with the Lord everyday but most of all look for the marks of the Spirit living through them to love, serve, grow and bring others to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.” -Bobby Auner

I'm just trying to figure this life thing out with the help of some amazing friends and a God who loves me in spite of my tendency to forget what is truly important!
