My post today is about membership.
I was at a meeting the day before yesterday. We started talking about membership.
What does it mean to be a member of something? What does it mean to be a member of a church? Do we sometimes gets confused by the word?
We can be the member of an organization, like a country club. It has its rights and privileges. We can be a member of a church, and that's not the same thing. Being a member of a church should be compared to being a member of the body of Christ.
Two different things, and yet sometimes perhaps we act as if church is a club and we are members. Are we confused? Does our term membership confuse others, outside of the church?
What does it mean to you to be a member of your church?
