Why Church? For Service

November 21, 2015

God created the church to serve the world. We must serve the world God loves and go and be salt and light in bland and dark places. How sad that one could ever think of church as boring and bland or throwing a wet blanket on fun and of veiling secrets in the dark. The church must recapture the leadership of being known as that which brings zest and life (like salt to food) and that creates openness and beauty by shedding light in the darkness. God equips his church with gifts for service that his Body, the Church, might be built up healthy and strong.
