Why is it important?

 
 
It’s important because of other people. For the most part, that’s our family, especially children. But that doesn’t mean that the next door neighbor or the person in the next cubicle at work isn’t also important to us. God is interested in having a relationship with them, too.

He made us to need each other. And He is pleased to use His children as ministers of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:17-20). So how are those in need of this reconciliation to know about it unless we become “living letters?” People complain that talk is cheap because they’re longing for the words of the Gospel to match the deeds of those who speak them. That’s why we need to demonstrate God’s love always and everywhere.

Does this mean that we have to be perfect? Of course not. Sometimes the best apologetic is an apology. People who don’t know Christ don’t need perfection from us, but they do need to see real people (who blow it and ask for forgiveness) following a real Christ, Who
makes a real difference in the homes of those who follow Him.

The next logical question is, “How?” That’s something we get to discover together, but don’t worry. The ministry leaders at our church have plenty of resources and support for you. All of it is designed to help us as we follow God’s call to live out our Faith@Home. So let’s go!
