1 Corinthians 13:11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. (NKJV)
Yesterday my post was concerned with the ease with which so many of us have adapted to the various Covid restrictions on gathering with other people in worship services. Today I would like to share with you why Jesus gave us the Church. While I will agree with all of those who contend that our walk with Jesus is individual, personal and somewhat solitary, the Church is given for the purpose of reflection, sharing, and measuring. We allow others to reflect their thoughts and ideas concerning this journey. We share our experiences and blessings allowing, others to listen and be helped by what we have to share. We measure our ability to serve, devote time and energy and resources to keep and promote the health and growth of the Gospel both in our various worship centers and throughout our communities.
