“Who’s the church?”
Ah, the memories. So, anyway, one of our former youth leaders believed that those five words are very important, or to rephrase them into four words: “We are the church.”
The church isn’t a building; it’s the people. It’s us. It’s not the place where the believers come together: it’s the believers themselves.
Our church has recently been going through a lot of changes. We’ve certainly downsized, and we sold our old building. We’re currently in our temporary location, and our new building is being finished off. It’s been a rough journey, and it’s been a true reminder that the church isn’t the building, that it’s the people.
Challenge: Remember that the church isn’t the building, it’s the people who are in the building.
