There are lots of opinions these days about the "kind" of church we should attend. Some say go small, others are all about big, but the real question is this: is Jesus with you?
The Old Testament passage in Jonah taught us that God will use us in many ways that we may not clearly understand. Even when we are reluctant or feel inadequate, God insures that His plan is fulfilled.
In Psalm 62, it is clear that God is our fortress and refuge. Life's trials and tribulations can be met by God when we go to Him in silence. He alone provides hope that is eternal.
In 1 Corinthians, we learn that we need to focus on things that truly matter. Earthly issues that we tend to wrap ourselves into are only temporary concerns. God's Kingdom is eternal, and our perspective should always keep His love for us as our fundamental focus.
In the Gospel of Mark, we were shown that now is the time for us to answer God's call and to turn towards Him to become His disciples in the world around us
