Neil Cole over at his Coleslaw blog recently wrote a post entitled “Jesus’ View of The Church.” I thought that Neil had a great idea for anyone or any group trying to figure out what church should look like. Spoiler Alert… this was the very last part of the post.
Here’s a closing suggestion: Take a sheet of paper and draw a line down the middle creating two columns. On the left write: “Who is Jesus?” and write down all the things you know about him (descriptions, names, powers). On the right side write: “Difference this should make in the way we do church.” Write down all the ways we should be different because of who Jesus is. I seriously doubt you can leave church the way it is in light of who Jesus truly is. I suspect, you can’t stay away from a hurting world and remain in the gathering of the faithful and really know and love Jesus for who He is.
