The House of God

So, we have a new building. We’re happy. It’s a wonderful release to have our own meeting space and to not be under another’s rule. Yet, we all know that the church is not the building. The church is the body of Christ, and wherever His people gather to worship in His name there He is also. Yes, we all know that, but at the same time a building is a very real physical expression of a church’s identity.

When we met in the Adventist building, they thought that we were Adventists, and when we met in the AICM Chapel, they thought we were the mission. I suppose, as I have joked before, if we met at McDonald’s they’d think that we were hamburgers! The mood and perspectives of people are often far afield of reality.

The building is just a building. It has no life of its own, but rather, it’s energized by the people that inhabit it. This is the reason that, although people are responding positively to our building by saying that it’s beautiful, we need to live up to that beauty. We are the heart and soul of this building. May God so will that we match the outward identity that is rising on this hill in Linden with an inward sincerity and godliness.

If indeed this building can be called a church, and even “the house of God,” then may all those who come and worship find God here. Yes, God does not dwell in houses of wood, and brick, and plaster, but He’s here nevertheless indwelling us, His people. There should be no question that this place is God’s house, and that our hope is in Him, and that we gather together in this place by His good favor.

Please join us in dedicating our church building this Sunday, September 23rd, at 2:00 PM. Celebrate with us!
