Revised for Volume 11
Who or what is the body of Christ? Not the building, not the organization, not the state, YOU!
Why is it such a big deal to you when the media and the state tell you that you cannot gather, that you cannot sing in church. You are making yourself a victim to the narrative. You are the body of Christ. You are the church.
When will we keep our focus upward?
Now do not get me wrong, I think all of those could be seen as acts of hate and intolerance. I just want you to be assured in your salvation that is in Christ, not dependent on a building or organization. YOU ARE THE CHURCH! You, not a building, not an organization that has become self-serving. Does that mean you do not need a congregation? By no means should you not fellowship.
Ephesians 2:21-22 NKJV in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.
I am reminded of stories from tornado alley where a church was demolished but they gathered in the rubble to praise God for what they had, not what they had lost.
Hebrews 10:24-25 (NKJV) And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.
Hey, have a zoom meeting, join a congregation on Facebook Live. Even if you cannot be face to face for whatever reason, reach out!
My Church has seen attendance growth through our Facebook live broadcasts. We are the Body of Christ. His Hands, His voice to today’s shaken world.
My son sent me this link which really says it all:
