The Christian Fellowship Church is a non denominational church in Ashburn, VA. One of the many teachings of the church centers around the belief that the church is the body of Christ and represents an extension of Jesus Christ's character, attitude, behavior, and mission in our world today. Jesus to me is the greatest leader to ever walk the face of the earth, for without raising a weapon against anyone throughout his short life on this planet, we was able to create an organization that endures to this day, more than 2000 years after his death and ascension.
As a leader in my home and my profession, I rely on the teaching of Jesus to guide me each and every day. The Christian Fellowship Church serves to reinforce and confirm the teaching of Jesus each week to me and my family. Whether it be Jesus' teaching on how to take up the towel and serve others or reminder of the temporary fleeting nature of material wealth, the Christian Fellow Church enables me to evaluate where I stand and confirm my faith on a weekly basis.
In attending the Christian Fellow Church, I am held accountable for actions taken over the past week and exposed to areas for improvement where I have fallen short of living a life exemplary of Jesus'. In so doing my attendance at the church and listening to the word that is preached serves as a performance feedback loop and a place for renewing my spirit with Jesus' teachings in preparation for a new week. For example, one day in new work week I may have tackled an incident in an unforgiving fashion only to be reminded at church on Sunday the strength of forgiveness and how it lifts stress to enable you to function and serve more freely. In addition I may be too quick to help others during the week, without evaluating the situation at hand. Such as, my wife may just need to listen to a challenge or issue without me presenting solutions to what I may perceive as a problem.
In the character, attitude, and behavior of Jesus I will be reminded to exercise patience and listen then take the situation or challenge to prayer for insights, based on understanding the magnitude of it all.
