It is so important to be committed to believers in a local church. D.L. Moody, an evangelist from the late 1800’s, led a million people to Christ. When he preached, he usually had a choir that included singers from many churches in the community. A lady came to him one day and said, “Mr. Moody, I would like to sing in your choir.” When Moody asked her which local church she represented, she said, “I am involved in the universal church.” Moody said to her, “Then find the pastor of the universal church and sing in his choir.” Moody recognized her need to be committed to a local church for spiritual protection and accountability. II Corinthians 12:18 says, “But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased.”
