God’s Symphony.

June 30, 2012

The rule of the universe is that others can do for us what we cannot do for ourselves, and one can paddle every canoe except one’s own.
~C. S. Lewis

There is a false idea that the only place Christ is present is in the four walls of a church. Truth is, Christ is everywhere.

He sees all we do.
He sees all we say.
He knows our hearts.
He knows our thoughts.

His church isn’t just where we worship. It is where we come together as His children in fellowship and community. Jesus said in Matthew 18:20, “For where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them.”

Church wasn’t meant to be restricted to a building. It wasn’t meant to oppress and shame the broken. It was meant to open the doors of His love in countless ways and bring us together as a brethren. No one left out. Everyone welcomed in the arms of His love.

The church can be anywhere He is in the middle….

Over a cup of coffee.
In your work office.
On a football field.
Eating with the homeless.
Talking with a stranger in a line.

If each of us were created in God’s image, billions of people on this earth, created in His likeness, the only way we truly reflect Him is if we come together. When we unite, our differences reflect His glory.

We weren’t meant to live this life alone. We were created to be the strongest where we all come together. My strengths might parallel your weakness and vice versa. That’s how He intended it. For us to be a community that comes together, centered in His love, to live this life to its fullest potential.

You see, the church is all of us. No two the same. Where our strengths and weaknesses collide in this web of life. Coming together with His love in the center.

Each of us are an instrument of God. Though we might make a beautiful sound individually, our sound can only reach its fullest potential in God’s symphony.
