These days it’s so easy to sign up for things on the internet. How many times has something caught your interest and you signed up. Then as soon as you go on to the next thing, it’s forgotten about forever! I’ve actually paid good money for subscriptions and never went back to take step 1. Accepting offers is easy, but they don’t do you any good unless you put them to work.
The same concept holds true with the ecclesia of the WMC. There are many benefits you’ll be able to receive. But the only way for the ecclesia to work for each and every one of us is for us to contribute to each other in one way, shape or form.
The ecclesia is all about our community taking care of each other. If we truly want to be disciples of Jesus we need to discover and practice the joy of giving! We all have diverse needs, interests, talents and resources. If you join us, you’ll be expected to make that commitment to serve your brothers and sisters in the ecclesia, probably in various ways.
We use the home church model that Jesus taught, to do bible studies and plan our outreach programs, etc. This keeps us more private and more personal with each other. We can interchange and meet various home church groups in the local area to get to know more and more people and expand our network of new friends. We can stay as a cohesive group with universal communications going out to everyone via internet or other technology so we’re always on the same page locally and globally.
The sick and elderly in your area may need some love and attention. Some may need consoling or emotional support. Working parents may need some babysitting. Business owners may need some consulting assistance. The needy may need some locally grown food or a place to stay while they get back on their feet. The homeless in the street might need some ministering and support. The unemployed might need some work. Some abused animals might need some love and attention. The list goes on.
As we build our local ministries our members are active and involved with each other and with the outside world.
Your commitment to the ecclesia guarantees that the ecclesia will be there for you. This is a pro-active social support system in a global network of local communities.
By becoming part of our family, it assures an active social life. You’ll be meeting and doing things with other people which will make this world a better place and you’ll have happiness and true fulfillment knowing that you are sharing the love of Jesus the Christ with others in ways that will make someone’s life better!
“They will know us by our fruit. We are the salt and the light of the earth! “
But it all starts with your ‘Commitment’ to live free and serve others!
