Be Strong: Importance of the Local Church
Spencer Davis : 1 Corinthians 12 : Be Strong
God’s plan was always to make a people for himself. Not individuals, not programs, not a building. When you join Christ, you join His people. You can not come to Christ without coming to His Body. To miss out on this is to miss out on one of the most powerful means of sharing the Gospel.
Don’t look solely at what you can get out of your church service, but instead look at what you can give to the church. Most people that say “I love Jesus, but not the church” don’t have an accurate understanding of the local church OR Jesus. You can’t join Jesus “the head” without joining the rest of the Body.
