The Growth of our Fellowship
The third thing that we have to capitalize on is ministry. See that, ministry. The Bible says in Romans 14:19, ”So let us concentrate on the things that make for harmony and the growth of our fellowship together.” The growth of our fellowship together. And this is one of the main stumbling blocks I see in the singles community. The church I came from has the largest singles ministry in the world, of any church. And this church has one of the largest singles ministry in the metroplex. But here is what I have seen in single’s lives over the last twelve years. Here is what I see them do. I see them kind of coming in and they will hang out for a couple of months, check out everything, I am talking about the opposite sex, and then when they have kind of dated four or five, they will go to the next church. ”Oh, all right man, have you seen her?” ”Now here is another church, OK”, and do that.
And what happens is, they miss out on God’s specific calling, His great church in the metroplex, great singles ministry. This church is not for every single. Find out where God is leading you. Join that church, single adults, stay there, plant your roots and say, ”I’m going to be a part of this”. And as you let yourself grow in your relationship with the Lord, as you explore the depths of that thing, He will give you a specific ministry in that Body of Christ, and, if He has given you the desire to be married, at the right time He will bring someone into your life. But you need to get off this church hopping, shopping and bopping thing. You end up getting bits and pieces and never really settling down.
