Re: No Matter How Hard I Try
I agree. Its very important to get into a good Bible teaching church. That fellowship with the family of God is very important to your Christian growth. There you will not only help yourself, but you'll get news of others who need you. Its important to do as Jesus did and the Bible says, 'He went about doing good.' If you are not in a church, you may never know of those who are sick or battling disease or who need food or need a phone call to help them through a sad time. I recently lost my husband. I know from experience that those in my church family helped support us through his illness, deteriorating health and his death. They called, sent cards, visited us, gave us 'gas cards' (for a while he was taking chemo and radiation treatments which meant daily, then weekly trips to the hospital).

My favorite scripture: Malachi 3:16
"Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name!" (Every time we speak of the Lord, or even THINK of him--its written down in a book of remembrance!)
