On the Battlefield
You don't love SO you can be loved. You love because He loves you! You don't get right and go to God. You go to God to get right. You don't give to get blessings. You give because He has blessed.
You can't say you are a Christian just because you go to church on Sunday, when your life from Monday through Saturday doesn't reflect it. You don't leave God at the church house doors. You carry Him with you.
Church is a place where you go to recharge, gain confidence, fellowship with people of like mind, who can encourage and lift you up in prayer, and hold you accountable. It is not a place to hang out once a week. What happens in church, unlike the bars around town, should not stay in church.
