One of the best books that I have read in quite awhile is I Am A Church Member, by Thom Rainer. It is a quick read, but it is extremely deep and powerful. I wish I could have had this book twenty five years ago! Rainer stresses six biblical attitudes that church members should embrace, and he points the reader to the proper Scriptures to back up what he says. Church membership is important, but membership in the church is not like membership in a country club. It doesn't come with perks and privileges; it comes with service and responsibility. Church membership is not earned or deserved; it is a gift from God that is to be treasured. I was convicted and deeply moved as I read Rainer's book and the Scriptures. I Am A Church Member is a great book, and you should get it as soon as possible and read it. Then the challenge will be to embrace it and live it.
