It’s easy to make yourself look and smell presentable for the church on Sunday mornings, but are you simply going to church – or are you being the church ? Are you bringing the church with you everywhere you go ? Are you representing the church admirably out on the streets and in your own homes ? Are you investing in your church family ? Do you care for and love your brothers and sisters within the church family ? Are you living Life to its fullest with your church family ?
Sadly a lot of people of the world think of church as that building down the street that has the steeple up on top of it and lots of cars in the parking lot out front on Sunday mornings. They think of the church as a brick and mortar building. It is their ritual to go to church on Sunday mornings, be seen, be heard, and then disappear until next Sunday morning.
Bringing the church family to what’s considered to be an unconventional location such as a movie theatre, a school, a banquet hall, a hotel, a park, a beach, and in each other’s homes states just that. It doesn’t matter where you are. The Bible says, “For where two or three gather together as My followers, I am there among them.”
We must always be the church, and never let our guard down. The enemy awaits in the darkness when we are weak. He will strike at anytime. Represent the church well. Be the Disciple that God created you to be. Expand God’s Kingdom everywhere you go.
Here’s a song about a young woman who has clearly hit rock bottom. She’s ready to end her life as she knows it. She takes a knife. She cuts. Deeper and deeper. The blood flows as she cries. But then a miracle truly occurs. Jesus Christ comes in to rescue her from the darkness. He saves her from the enemy. She believes. She’s got new eyes. She puts down her life for Christ. A new Life begins. Thank You Jesus for all of your miracles on this fantastic journey. It’s in the lyrics:
