Although God commands His people to love one another, growing in a loving spirit of unity is one of the greatest challenges facing churches today. And when we struggle with showing grace toward one another, we don’t let the light of Christ shine clearly to the world around us.
Make Yourself at Home presents a guide to developing a Christian community that meets the deepest spiritual, relational, emotional, and physical needs of its people. In this book, you’ll be encouraged to know and embrace the “one another” commands centered on loving, praying for, serving, and accepting each other. Each chapter shares Scripture and illustrations, along with practical suggestions to help you apply these commands to everyday living. Discover how you can cultivate the heart of the church—to keep the light shining, and show the world the reality of Christ’s love.
