God Chooses Our Friends

I was listening to a podcast yesterday, and I heard something that was worth writing down. 

The pastor being interviewed said the church is the place where God chooses your friends. He was explaining that when we become a part of a local congregation of Christ-followers, many of us spend more time with our church family than we do our real families.

Now listen, I know there’s no guarantee that you’ll be friends with everyone at your church. But the truth is, the Church is the way God asks us to show the world that what we have in common through Christ is more important than all the things that make us different. We choose to love in spite of one another and for the sake of Jesus. God chose us, and now we choose each another.

This is the Church.
