BE the Church, for Heaven’s sake

He said to them, “But who do you pronounce Me to be?” And Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I shall build My church, and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.
Matt 16:15-18

Jesus is building His Church and He is building it with individuals who share a common Divine revelation of who Jesus Christ IS.

And this is a Living, perpetual-ongoing, shared revelation – vision, not just a one-time event:

Who Jesus is to you : When 2 or more are in a real love relationship to one another, where Jesus is EVERYTHING – truly LORD and King in our lives, then we need to acknowledge that this is the LORD’S doing : the LORD’S building; building His Church, and we are together that House that will stand.

We simply need to agree with the Living Head of the Church and work-in with His plans; surrendering to His Way and Wisdom for His Church, and BE the Church today.

His Church and His Kingdom are synonymous: If you can BE a part of His Kingdom today, then you can be a functioning part of His Church today: The Kingdom won’t wait till Sunday, neither does the Head of the Church wait for Sunday to build His Church. Maybe few, if anyone, will immediately acknowledge what you are doing as ‘real church’ bcos the externals may not look much like traditional church, just as the Kingdom does not come with observation; you can’t label and package ‘it’ and say, it’s here or it’s there, bcos ‘it’ is the free wind of the Holy Spirit and is among you: ‘It’ is He, Himself.

You can’t label and package and market the true Church of the Living God anymore than you could package and market your own family.

BE the Church today : pray for the brethren: get together with them; invite them over; go visit people together to preach the gospel as a team; exercise the authority which is yours in Christ Jesus to BE a functioning member of His Body today :

LORD, what is my part in your Body? What do you want me to do today and how do you want me to relate to and serve my brothers and sisters?
