The Condition of the Church
Last Wednesday at bible study Pastor asked us a question. He asked us to consider the condition of the church. As I began to do so at first the picture looked a bit bleak especially when I viewed the church from the standpoint of what God’s word says we are and what He says we can do. The word of God says we as believers are the body of Christ. Ephesians 1:22-23, my feet are His feet, my hands are His hands, my body belongs to Him. These verses also tell us we are the fullness of Christ in Him, meaning we have been given authority and power to live and do what He did. Now this picture of the Church is one I can get excited about. Why you may ask is this not the version of the Church being exemplified?
There are a number of things we can attribute to this fact; distractions from the enemy, ignorance, lack of faith; but the number one factor I believe is Unbelief. John 3:16
As believers we are the most powerful agents on earth, we just need to believe what the word of God says about the Church of Jesus Christ.
