Why I’m Thankful for the Church? We have partnership in the Gospel as Jesus completes his work in others’ lives. We are co-partakers of grace (Philippians 1: 3-11). We pray for love to abound and approve what is excellent to be filled with righteousness (i Thessalonians 3:12; 2 Thessalonians 1:3).
The Church is not a building. Jesus constructs an overcoming, victorious Church built on Holy Spirit revelation that makes it alive, a Church that has authority, apostolic people aware of being sent. To die more is to live more. Matthew 16: 13-18; John 20: 19-23; I Peter 2: 4-10; I Corinthians 12: 12-14; 27-28
Ephesians 5: 25-27
God has provided the Church as a way for us to be made new.
Titus 3:5 New life throught the Holy Spirit. Ephesians 2: 19-21 The Church is not a perfect place but it is a good place with Jesus as the Cornerstone. Hebrews 10:6 and Galatians 6: 9 In what ways are we the Church through teaching, praying and forgiving?
