Build Me A Bigger Church Building
Jesus wants a big and powerful church, but didn’t seem to mention the size of our fellowship halls. Although there have been many cultural twists and turns through the centuries, and church looks very different now than it did in Jesus’ time, his lack of emphasis on the local and organized church is telling. With our modern minds and ambitions, we tend to want to do much for Jesus, and so we think we’ll build him a bigger building, or plan a bigger event. Because of course, bigger must be better. Sadly, that “truth” is only applicable in Texas. Jesus doesn’t want size, he wants fruit. He wants potency. Changed and transformed lives are far more precious to him than a shiny podium. His agenda remains the same, to seek and save the lost. If we’re doing that, then we are a success – even if we don’t have a brand spanking new building or sound system.
