Where The Gospel Is Proclaimed


"He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of out Lord Jesus Christ" (2 Thess.2;14)

There are many social organizations out there that people join like the Lions or Jaycees... They are for the most part service based and many of them are worthwhile for people to be a part of. The church on the other hand, although service is an important ingredient, is much different in its nature. "And God placed all things under His feet and appointed Him to be head over everything for the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills everything in every way" (Eph.1:22-23) The church is not based upon a bunch of rules and regulations that men have put together, but upon Jesus Christ and His Word... He is the foundation upon which the church is built. "For no one can lay a foundation other than the one that is already laid, which is Christ Jesus" (1 Cor.3:11) As we see from today's verse, people just don't decide out of the blue to become a Christian and join a church, but rather they are called through our gospel... When people heed that gospel call, the Lord adds them to His body, the church. With the church as Jesus' body where the gospel is proclaimed, the responsibility to remain true to that gospel is an awesome one. Unless the gospel is proclaimed in its simplicity and purity, a church cannot be pleasing to God. The business of the church is to please the Lord....

Have a wonderful day... Let His light shine through you... Love mark Phil.4:11
