Supportive of my Church - July 18, 2021
God has given us the church as the body of Christ on this earth. When people see the church in action, they should see a good reflection of Christ in the world. People loving one another, not judging those on the outside, giving freely of their time, talents, and money, and living with integrity in all they do. These are just some of the ways that Christian people reflect Christ.
But the reality of Christian living is that there is no perfect church. The reason is because there are no perfect Christians. We are all sinners saved by grace. The moment you and I joined the church, we brought our own imperfections, hurts, habits, and hang-ups into the church. Therefore, we must work hard to not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of our mind (Rom. 12:2).
Paul was a missionary who wrote to the church in Colossae in the 1st century. He had to address the heresy that was coming into the church through false teachers. People were
worshipping angels, believing in rules to create righteousness, trusting in their own goodness, and trusting worldly philosophies that were not from Christ. He used his own life as an example of how, in Christ, we are to build up the church we are a part of.
