The Love Test

Let’s take the Love Test.  It is one thing to say you love every member of your church, but the Bible tells us what that will look like. Rate yourself. Do you really love your church family?

What Did You Expect?

  1. Starting a church is hard work.
  2. Satan is going to attack my family and me.
  3. People will surprise me.
  4. Some people will hurt me.
  5. Jesus never fails.

The fermata
