It is way too easy to view church as something you “go to” in order to improve the rest of life. If that is all we are, then people are right in putting it low on their priority list. The church is so much more than that. It is God’s prime agent in bringing his kingdom into this world. Let us regularly remind ourselves of the nature of the church and of our calling as followers of Christ. Let us move from a churchy, religious view of our faith, to a practical, day to day view of our faith. How we live our lives as Christians matters. It matters for our spiritual well being, and it matters for our mission as a church, which is to make disciples of Christ for the transformation of the world.
