I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
Suppose a man came to your door and said, “I’m really hungry and I need a meal.” So you say, “Well, come on in!” You get out some of your dinnerware and put a big steak on a plate with a baked potato, and you lay it down right in front of him.
The man looks at what you’ve set in front of him, folds his arms, sits back, and says, “I’m not going to eat it.” So you ask him, “Why aren’t you going to eat it? You said you were hungry!” And he says, “There’s a chip on the plate and I refuse to eat off of it.” Now, wouldn’t that just be unbelievable?
Many people come to church and say, “Yes, I’m hungry for Jesus.” But they look around and find chips on the wall and chips in the lives of people. They find all sorts of things to criticize. But real hunger for the Word and for fellowship with others will look past those imperfections and see what’s perfect about the church: Jesus.
The church has flaws. There’s not a church in the world that is perfect. Yet, we serve a perfect Saviour. So if you’re not plugged into a local church, find a good, imperfect, Jesus-centred church and discover the joy of experiencing life in Christ with others!
No Church Is Perfect, But Christ Is. So Live Life Together With Imperfect People Who Serve A Perfect Saviour!
Thank You Jesus!
