Morning Thought: Church is not a consumer affair. You don’t surf for churches like an online browser. It’s a covenant community. It’s made possible through the covenant Jesus made with us through his blood. He has made us his people. He is at the centre, not ourselves. Once our minds are renewed about who we are as his church (his people), then our churches will be full of his life and power. Let us have the same love Jesus has for his bride. “He [Christ] gave up his life for her to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word. He did this to present her to himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish. Instead, she will be holy and without fault” (Ephesians 5:25b-27, NLT).
