I love my church.

I love it because there are people who feel like family.

I love it because there’s something powerful about lifting your hands in worship with those who believe in Christ.

I love hearing the Bible taught in such a way that it changes me.

I love it because it is an instrument to love, impact, and reach others.

But as much as I love my church, the Church is bigger than a building.

Bigger than a denomination.

Bigger than a tradition. 

It’s our last week in the #youandGod study and I want to take this deeper with you over the next week.

worshipWhat does it mean to be a living, breathing part of the Church?

What does it mean to be a part of a something that encompasses all races, all languages, across nations with no barriers?

What does it look like to join with others who have a heart beating with the passion of Christ?

What does it mean to partner with men and women who walked with Jesus, to those who are martyred in other nations, to those who are yet to serve Him?

And what does this have to do with you and God?

It has everything to do with you and God.

We’ll dig into that deeper the rest of this week.

So, let’s start here.

What’s your definition of “church?”
