LISTEN NOW! A recent article in The Guardianwas titled,England’s churches can survive – but the religion will have to go. The “Church” has always been “the people” and only in recent times has the mentality of Church being “the building”. 1 Corinthians 3:9 says, “For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building.”Considering the events that we are seeing and facing today, the title of The Guardians’ most recent headline is important to note. Religion is what put Jesus on the Cross. Jesus did not come to save buildings. He came to save souls; people. For those who are hungry for the love and truth of Jesus Christ, this is greatly encouraging!
Some people have allegiance to others and some have allegiance to God. It is important for each of us to be honest with ourselves and ask, why are we doing what we’re doing? John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” God desires relationship so much, that He gave His Son. God is a personal God. We as the Church should be walking in the same way. Being the Church is not as complicated as religion has made it out to be. When the Church, the people, come together and naturally relate, as God has called us to, as family, this is when we see beautiful things in our midst: signs, wonders, healings, the Presence of God, and relationship. Allow your faith to be stirred as you see and hear about the simplicity and the power of what God has designed for each of us to be a part of, and so much more.
