“The Beloved Son Of God…!”(II Sam.7:4-6&12-14a).
A study of Christian expansion from New Testament times reveals that when the Church is growing at the peripheries it is dieing at the centres. In Europe Church houses are being transformed into garages and other usages. In the continent we have stubbornly ignored this lesson.
The Church is not the building; the Church is where two or three are gathered and call on the name of the LORD.
Sometimes the alluring Church houses merely use the name of Christ without the Holy Spirit having any space within its precincts.
God told David he was not the one to build a house for him. Historically Solomon was the chosen, but prophetically Jesus Christ was the One in whom the LORD is well pleased and who is himself the true temple of the LORD.
As an unwritten rule humans are always on exodus. We learn to move with Christ wherever we go, but we do not move with the Church house. We are not discouraging the construction of befitting places of worship according to the people’s means. What we are saying is that Jesus Christ is the temple of the LORD and also the beloved One whom the LORD chose to establish his presence here on Earth. May we learn to direct true worship to him who is the head of his Church.
Prayer: Holy Spirit open our eyes of faith to see Jesus Christ as the true centre of our worship. Amen!
Have a blessed day! Peace be with you!
Rev Babila Fochang.
