CHRIST AND HIS CHURCH

The Bible proposes to tell us about Christ and His Church. It tells us all the same thing. In the final analysis, it is what the Bible says and not what any man says that makes a thing right in religion. You can have confidence in what you learn about the church from the Bible for time and eternity.

Does Christ have a church? Unquestionably, the Bible answers in the affirmative.

CHRIST BUILT A CHURCH

Jesus promised: “Upon this rock I will build

my church, and the gates of hell shall not

prevail against it” (Mt. 16:18). We can be

assured that Jesus did what he promised to do.

 

CHRIST BOUGHT A CHURCH

To the bishops at Ephesus, Paul instructed:

“Feed the church of the Lord which he purchased

with his own blood” (Acts 20:28).

CHRIST IS HEAD OF THE CHURCH

           “And He (Christ) is the head of the body, the

church; who is the beginning, the first-born

from the dead, that in all things he might have

the preeminence” (Col. 1:18). God “gave Him

(Christ) to be head over all things to the church”

(Eph. 1:22).

CHRIST ADDS SAVED PEOPLE TO HIS

           CHURCH

“And the Lord added to the church daily such as

should be saved” (Acts 2:47).

From these passages of Scripture, it is very obvious and most evident that Christ not only has a church, but that He sustains a vital relationship to it . It is impossible for one to love and obey Christ and at the same time disregard His church.

The Bible tells us that Christ “Loved the church, and gave himself for it” (Eph. 5:25). May we love the church of the Lord Jesus Christ and give our very best to promoting her Cause.

A WONDERFUL POSSIBILITY

 

 

 

 



FOREVER POSSESSIONS

Of all the possessions you and I claim,
there are just very few that we will get to
keep forever. It’s a shocking truth that most
of the possessions we had only a few years
ago are already gone. The house I lived in
only ten years ago is no longer mine. The
cars I drove back then are on the scrap heap
now. The clothes I wore are long gone and
most of us wouldn’t wear them now if we
still had them. The household stuff, like
computers, appliances, TV’s, stereos, and
even furniture (in most cases) is either gone
are soon to be discarded.For that matter, the health I had ten years ago
has diminished greatly. The abilities I had back
then are far fewer now. The glasses I wore back
then aren’t strong enough anymore, which means I
am losing my keen eyesight.
Should which reviews of all that we have being
slowly (or sometimes rapidly) lost shock or depress
us? Well, only for the children of God is this both
NOT shocking and NOT even depressing. Our Father
God has spoken to us (his children) about this
and prepared us for such developments. He has
even helped us to be able to watch all these “ possessions”
fade away and remain the happiest people
on earth. Listen for this message in the following
Words from our God:
“Godliness with contentment is great gain!For
we brought nothing into the world, and we can
take nothing out of it. But if we have food and
clothing, we will be content with that. People who
want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and
into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge
men into ruin and destruction.” I Timothy 6:6-9.
Our hearts (with an awareness of the temporary
nature of all we have) should surely be asking
our God for insight into how to avoid the despair
and grief that comes to those whose happiness is
found in temporary possessions. “How should we
think and how can we deal with the insecurity of

all we have, Lord?” And the Father above answers the
children He loves saying: “You, man of God, flee
from all this , and pursue righteousness, godliness,
faith, love, endurance and gentleness. Fight the
good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life
to which you were called when you made your
good confession in the presence of many witnesses.”
I Timothy 6:11-12.
Our God gives His children “eternal life” in a
place (heaven) with Him where our possessions will
never wear out, fade, rust, or be lost. Wow, does
that truth have power to lift our spirits to joy!
