Church is God’s people

Most would associate the word ‘church’ with a building, steeple, or priest. Yet, in the Bible that’s never the case. Church is the people of God.

In Ephesians 2:19–22, church is the household of God – the family of God. It’s a spiritual reality. God has put us in our town to show people what the family of God looks like. As we love one another, pray for one another, encourage one another, rebuke one another, and teach one another, we show our town what it looks like to live in relationships under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

To state the obvious, we can’t do this on our own. It’s impossible to ‘one another’ on your own.

And so it’s God’s plan for all Christians to meet together and live together as his people in the local church.

This is hard, but possible! And so let’s ask God to enable us to live as his people with love and grace.

In Christ, Tory Cayzer.
