Why the CHURCH is so vital

This is a post that won’t make the Huff and Puff Post (aka, the “Huffington Post”). It’s not filled with angst or disillusionment over the “Church.” So, about 3 people will read this. Angst sells.

We get so fed up with our tiny little views of “the Church” and think it’s all about what is wrong with “the Church.” It’s not “the Church” you’re upset about. It’s your tiny sliver of experience and you haven’t really gone past that.

The CHURCH is beautiful. And you don’t get to worship Jesus (the HEAD) without the Church (his BODY). Unless you’re a cannibal or head hunter or something.

I LOVE the Body of Christ. I LOVE my church where I pastor. I LOVE the wider Body of Christ in my city. I LOVE the expressions of the Church I see from time to time around the world.

It is time to declare it: JESUS HAS A BEAUTIFUL BODY!

22 And God placed all things under his feet an19 Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizenswith God’s people and also members of his household, 20 built on the foundationof the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. 21 In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. 22 And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.d appointed him to be head over everything for the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.(Eph. 1:22-23)
