1 Timothy 3:16 Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great: He appeared in the flesh, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory.
Was, is, and always will be the true source of all godliness. We can be a reflection of that godliness to the broken world around us. In the midst of the squalor, decay, and darkness we can with the very radiance of His goodness and become the one who might open the door, or show the door to someone who is lost. Faith in Jesus is a very personal, individual and dare I say private thing. Yes, we are called to band together for strength. Each person is uniquely gifted to carry out the Father’s purposes. This further mystery is called the Church, the body of Christ. I’m still trying to fathom this great mystery, but I am filled with joy to be a part of it.
I know, right now you’re probably rolling your eyes and thinking, “been there, done that…” If you are making your willingness to be a part of the church dependent upon the “performance” of other Christians I’ve got some news for you. People will fail your expectations just about every time. Get over it. Pitch in and help. Do what God is calling you to do. I shudder to think about the consequences of failure, your or mine. Christians have only one hero, Jesus. No pastor, layman, teacher, author is able to accomplish in you what He can.
