Whose Agenda–Whose Glory?
By events, books,sermon mp3s, and conferences, I have been often forced or moved to think on the priority and importance of the local church–a sacred God-ordained people. The local church is the primary means by which black-hearted rebels are transformed into Christ-obeying disciples through the saving and sanctifying power of the Good News. This is a significant portion of God’s agenda of self-glorification.
The church belongs to God, it is the body of Christ, His bride, and glory.
What are we doing in, about or to the local church which promotes our own agenda and glory?
