Did you catch that?
1. The church is not "ours," it's HIS church.
2. HE is the one who builds it, not us.
3. That "church" is ramming the gates of hell not cloistered behind walls, and those gates won't stay on their hinges (yesss! God is greater!).
This is one of the incredibly helpful (though admittedly disorienting) things about the new Community Commons facility we are building - it forces us to embrace Jesus' paradigm about the church and not a cultural one.
We can't build a new church, and we can't invite people to attend church. The church is not and cannot ever be a building or service, it's a family of his followers committed to living out his mission. And it will triumph over the powers of darkness.
Lord Jesus, You're the King and everything I have is Yours. Help me right now to be a wise steward, to carefully allocate these resources You've entrusted to me according to Your purposes. Please open the heavens to pour out blessing - not TO me, but THROUGH me. Enable me to fulfill and even exceed the amount You've put in my heart to give. For Your glory in the saving of lives now and forever, Amen.
