The Church. If I asked you to tell me about your church, what would you say?
Would you tell me about the size of the building? Or maybe, what it looks like inside. Or would you tell me about the people? Now this might be a stretch for some people but think about this for a minute. In Ephesians chapter 5 starting at verse 25, Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing with water through the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. In the same way, husbands should love their wives as their own bodies.
Church, what does that mean? I’d imagine to most it’s the building where you go each week to worship. But is that the church? Jesus told Simon Peter you are the rock I will build my church on. So what is the church?
