Just Wondering…

I was just wondering what you thought about church? You know what I mean; I have asked this question before. Perhaps you think that church happens when you show up to sing, shout, and praise the one who died for you. Maybe church for you is the building or programs you desire so you do not need to be bored and yet feel good about yourself for showing up once in a while. But, as one German pastor once said, “A bunch of stones does not make building; a bunch of Christians does not make a church.” Just because folks show up on Sunday does not make it worship nor does it make it a church. Church is made up of like-minded believers, joined together in membership, who seek to serve him who died for us in the community they live until he returns. Church is not about you; it is about you serving him. Makes one wonder…
