Church play?

Are you playing or being the church?

I am PLAYING church when I only care about what I get out of the Sunday morning experience.
I AM the church when I deliberately work to put as much as I can into making the Sunday morning experience a transformational event for everyone else.

I am PLAYING church when God nudges me to do the right thing by loving the people around me and I ignore the prompt.
I AM the church when I pray God would give me opportunities to serve those around me in ways that would lead others to feel his love and come to know him.

I am PLAYING church when I place more emphasis on task completion. I AM the church when I focus on people’s needs first, tasks second.
