Back 2 the Basics — The Church Pt 2
We continued discussing the church this week in our Back 2 the Basics sermon series. We talked about the church in progression from the early church continuing on into the future. The process began from the moment Christ redeemed us and we continue to take more ground as more people are saved. We must understand that we are not at the place today where we will be tomorrow, and allow ourselves some room to grow.
We also talked about the church being the body of Christ. Although we have countless denominations in the world today, the main concern should be the foundation of our faith -- Jesus Christ. We ALL stand unified with Jesus as our foundation. The bottom line is that if you believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, you will be saved.
Lastly, our continual prayer as the church must be, "Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done." We must long more for the Kingdom of God than for our own "kingdom" or our own will. We must not be frightened by the end times, but desire for Jesus to come quickly.
Sometimes the battle is hard, but the victory is glorious.
