I love the local church!
Though flawed and imperfect, the beauty of the local church is truly amazing.
Consider the big picture of the Church:
God birthed it.
Jesus died for it.
The Holy Spirit empowers it.
It works because of volunteers.
It serves people for free.
Everyone is welcome.
It’s fully human.
It inhabits the supernatural.
It proves miracles still happen.
It started in houses.
It fills stadiums.
And it cannot be contained.
It loves the lowly.
It blesses the meek.
And offers grace to anyone who will bow.
I just can’t get tired of the church!
When people find me to complain about and criticize the church, I quickly admit the flaws of my church and the Church in general.
