I AM LOOKING FOR THE CHURCH...and yet it is often hard to find her. With all the politics and programs, sometimes I cannot recognize the beauty only she possess.
I AM LOOKING FOR THE CHURCH...and yet it seems with these watered down messages and a lack of repentance, we have caused her to start to look just like everyone else. Almost unrecognizable, I still have hope in her glorious return.
I AM LOOKING FOR THE CHURCH...not another building, not another mega or mini, but a message written on the hearts of saints who understand the building is not the bases or our Christianity. It is more than attending services, it is surrendering your life to the Father, following the Son, and being led by the Holy Spirit.
I AM LOOKING FOR THE CHURCH...the people who come together in genuine fellowship understanding community is necessary in the Body and without we fail. Those who know living life alone is a set up for isolation and despair. See the real CHURCH cares about others and reaches its arms out to help.
I AM LOOKING FOR THE CHURCH...I know it exists because I see remnants of her daily from the radicals who are done with religion, and the courageous who will speak out against sin, but who do it with love and compassion for humanity. We do not need to attack, but become reachable, teachable examples of Christ.
I AM LOOKING FOR THE CHURCH...not what you think it is, but what the BIBLE tell us it should be. Not the false teachers or the arrogant leaders, but the servants ready to serve. The givers, ready to give. And the whole of God's people shining their lights for the world to see.
