This week I received a card from a friend who in recent years has been blessed through much of our ministry at Trinity. Part of the card defines a 'successful' church this way:
*Loves one another
*Serves one another
*Bears one another's burdens
*Shares freely God's salvation plan
*Hungers and thirsts after righteousness
*Let's their light shine so God is glorified
Not a bad list - and one, I think, which well sums up Trinity.
Here's my question for you: Knowing what the Bible says about the church, what would you add to that list to describe biblical success for a local church? Post your answers. I'd love to learn from them.
