The day you became a Christian, you joined the most awesome family that ever existed. On that day, you became a child of God’s family. Making the initial, verbal commitment to live your life for Christ takes only a few minutes. Learning how to live that commitment out -to heal, to grow, to thrive as a child of God -takes a lifetime. We also refer to this family as The Church, where we experience what we call “authentic community”, one of the core values of Grace Covenant Church. This week, we’ll consider what this value actually looks like and how to walk it out in everyday life.
