Carmichael SDA Church Bulletin

Jun 8, 2024    Pastor Marvin Wray

It seems that at all Conference Constituency meetings, Division meetings, and certainly at General Conference meetings there is always a report on statistics. We love to share the increased numbers in membership, tithe, number of churches, etc. I'm not saying this is a bad thing, but I wonder if this is what God is seeking for us. Or, is He perhaps more interested in our personal growth and our unity? On that great resurrection morning the saints are going to be caught up together in the air and suddenly race, gender, denominational preference and so many other things that divide us here are not going to matter at all. We will at last be ONE! I think that is God's ideal for His church on earth now. As we strive so hard to be "right", let us be surrendered to Christ and be one in Him.
