Heart To Heart

Building My Church

We often hear the terms “brother-in-Christ” or “sister-in-Christ” – perhaps we even use it ourselves. But how often do we think of our fellow Calvarites as family?

Calvary is our home, as much as it is our church. Just as we all have a part to play at home, we each have different roles in Calvary – whether as pastors, teachers, mentors or administrators.

1 Corinthians 12:12 Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ.

A family also cares deeply for each other, and we should too, as fellow Calvarites.

1 Corinthians 12:26 If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.

Having grown up here, Calvary naturally became a second home over the years. Sure, there were times I wanted to run away when things got difficult, but knowing God purposed for me to grow in Calvary kept me here. I also had the privilege of having spiritual mentors and childhood friends who nurtured my spiritual giftings and continue to stand by me today.

Just as Calvary is the family that has developed my giftings and allowed me to exercise them, I pray all Calvarites will be able to call our church “home” – choosing to build each other’s life and watch out for each other.

With this unity, we can then be a church that the gates of hell will not overcome, just as Jesus intended (Matthew 16:18).
