Building The Church

What really is the church? How do we build what we cannot see the boundaries or extent of? We cannot count numbers and we cannot compute square footage so how do we know if we are building the church?

The church is people living in and through the power of God as caretakers of the things of God. Building the Church of God is expressing the Power of God through the care we express as regards the things of God. This is the natural world.  

There is only one way to build the church and that is by increasing unity; that is by erasing the things that divide us. There is only one way to build the church and that is by faith in Jesus. Without this faith we cannot erase the hate and distrust and greed that divide us. Division destroys our capacity to work together and care for the planet.

Without the faith in Jesus that enables us to have faith in each other, we will not overcome the divisive influences of sin to the point where we can create a world that God wants us to live in.
