(This video sets off a month of conversation based around church and Kingdom. Press play to watch it now, and then share your thought with me in the comments below.)
The church needs to leave the building in order to engage with the rest of the world. So my questions for you are:
“What does church mean to you? Is it just a building you go to every Sunday? Is it a place you constantly visit as a tradition?”
The church must be a community of people who practice love and grace on each other so that they can offer them perfectly to the rest of the world.
This isn’t something that just happens on Sunday mornings either.
If you are part of a redeemed community living in a reconciled society, you can take the Good News to whomever you want, whenever you want, wherever you want.
Church should not just be something you do; it’s something you are.
This makes it highly relational not just functional. All of life is a ministry because the Kingdom of Heaven is among you and within you, so you don’t ever need to restrict your thinking.
If you’re ready to do church differently, you can learn more in The Church Has Left The Building and make this Kingdom lifestyle a day-to-day reality in your life.
PS) The Church Has Left The Building is available on CD and MP3 and is currently on sale this month at Brilliant Book House. I’d love for you to get a copy, and join me in this conversation of how we can be the church. Click here to order yours now!
