Do you take membership seriously?

Many professing Christians do not. In fact, modern evangelicals approach the Church of Jesus Christ as they would any other commodity in this consumer-driven, overly-commercialized, and abusively-capitalistic culture.

If more Christians took church membership seriously (and stopped shopping around from church to church), they would commit themselves to a local church through covenant promises and be loathe to forsake that commitment unless absolutely (i.e., doctrinally) necessary.

God calls you to take membership seriously:

“We urge you, brethren, to recognize those who labor among you, and are over you in the Lord and admonish you…” (1 Thess. 5:12) “Obey those who rule over you, and be submissive, for they watch out for your souls, as those who must give account. Let them do so with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you.” (Hebrews 13:17)
