- In Matthew 16:18, Jesus declared, "I will build my church." This is the only entity that our Lord ever vowed to establish. Does it make sense that those who claim to be followers and servants of Jesus would be disinterested in doing His singular great passion? Doesn't it strike you as odd that a Christian would be completely uninvolved in Christ's one and only construction project?
- 1 Corinthians 12 is the famous passage that uses the metaphor of a human body to describe this mystery called the church. Christ is the head, and we (individual Christians) are various body parts. The analogy couldn't be any clearer. A healthy body is intact. It's parts, or members, are joined together, and they work together doing whatever the head directs.
- A detached part of the body will die if not reattached to the body. The same consequences hold true in the spiritual realm for those believers who remain aloof from the church.
- As Hebrews 10:25 states: "let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of His return is drawing near."
