One of the best ways to bring about renewal within The Church is praying daily for your actual, local church.
Probably the best first step to:
- Obeying God’s command to love our brothers and sisters.
- Encouraging soft hearts ready to repent of lovelessness, apathy, injustice, or whatever burden you have for the Church.
- Contributing towards the healing and wholeness of that church’s broken parts.
Broad church initiatives are good and right. But they are grounded in the faithfulness of local church members, elders, and ministers.
