“Now to himm who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3:20, 21
How big is your church?
Now, there are several ways to answer that question. Do you want to know how many members we have? Or do you want to know our average attendance? Could you be referring to the actual square footage of our building? However, there just may be a better measurement answer.
It is easy to get caught up in size. Some bemoan their smallness, while others tend to complain about the struggles created by their bigness. Both have their challenges. In truth, whether your church is big or small, the only size that matters is that of your God. An obedient, childlike faith in the Almighty Creator of the universe and His Son, the Savior of the world, will make your church and its ministry effectively huge!
How big is your church? It’s a worldwide ministry to the nations. It starts at your doorstep, continues to your community, flows into your state/country, and extends to the four corners of the world. It’s huge!
How big is your God? Hopefully you believe He’s big enough to use you. Through your commitment to prayer, your daily witness, and your generous giving, He will accomplish the worldwide work He has entrusted to your care. How important is your faithfulness? It’s huge!
Wow, your God and His vision for your church are huge. It’s all in how you ‘measure’ it.
