That’s why I am so thrilled about Fellowship Church. We are a Bible-believing, Bible-teaching church. This is our only authority. [Ed holds up the Bible] No denomination is our authority. The Bible is. Isn’t that great? That’s why we have so many people from so many different walks of life.
I met someone the other day. He came up to me and said, “Yes, I have heard about Fellowship Church, but I’m Catholic.”
I told him, “Do you know what? We probably have more people from Catholic backgrounds than any other background at Fellowship.”
My wife grew up Lutheran. Many people here grew up Baptist or Bible Church. Some people grew up nothing and that’s a cool thing. It’s thrilling to see people who are dating say, “God has led us to Fellowship Church. This is our church home. This is a great bridge church and this is our place.”
So, settle on a place before you walk down the wedding runner. I’ll stop now and change to something else. That was very important.
Maybe you are a “why” person. I am a big “why” person.
“Why? Why would God insist on all this stuff? Why would God give us the urge to merge, put the wrong way sign there and then say you have got to have yielded like the other person should have yielded – to Christ? Why?”
I’m glad you ask, because I asked that question a long time ago. And the answer is, “Because God wants our marriages to go to the next level. He wants our marriages to always be on the up tick. He wants us to hit higher ground, and he knows we can only hit higher ground if we are yielded to Christ.” If we are both yielded to Christ, then we can share that which is the most near and dear to our spirits with each other.
