YOUR Church – Not So Fast

Sky

While out driving, I passed a church with a huge sign in bold letters:  “WELCOME TO
YOUR CHURCH.”  My initial response to the sign was one of welcome and inclusion, but something just wasn’t right.  I tend to let those types of things sit in my head and mull over them.

Then I realized that tends to be the way we do think.  We are possessive of “our Churches,” and that in itself is at issue.  The body of Christ is the church – HIS Church – There is one True Church just like there is One True God, and we are definitely not the possessors of either.  When we build spiritual walls between ourselves, we are destroying the true church.  When we keep our focus on those things we know to be true and not our differences, then we become HIS church.

 
  • There is one True God – I AM.
  • Man is sinful and separated from God.
  • God sent His Son to be the sacrifice for our sins.
  • When we accept our sinfulness and repent and call on the name of Jesus, He will forgive us and accept us into the church.
  • The body of believers is the Church.
Let us stop focusing on the differences and rejoice in the similarities – We worship the One that created the Heavens and the Earth, He sent His Son so that we might be Saved, He will come again, and we will reign with Him.  If you worship one way and I another, let us not lose sight that we worship the One True God.
