The CHURCH is Christ ordained body, which He desires to be ONE with. Why? Because He loves her and gave His life for the CHURCH (the called-out ones) and one day soon, He is coming back for the CHURCH so that He can take her and present her to the Father as His eternal Bide.
A disciple is a follower of Jesus Christ, we are part of the Firstborn whose name is kept in the CHURCH registry in heaven. The disciple needs to get a bigger vision and focus. One, a disciple is a “discipline one” in Christ who has been “called out” from the world. Secondly, we need to be part of a local church for growing and maturing. Thirdly, we are part of a worldwide CHURCH body that Christ Jesus is the head of which soon He is coming back for. The CHURCH is His BELOVED!
The book of Revelation needs to be read as a book that was given to the Churches so that they would prepare themselves for the Groom who soon will come for His Bride. People we need to hear what the Spirit is trying to say to the CHURCHES and in this day and age, we need to tune out the noise of the world and tune into hearing the voice of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit is proclaiming now to the CHURCHES, that it is time to hear and to get ready. (Rev. 2:7, 11, 17, 23, 29, 3:6, 13, 22)
The key to understanding the purpose of the CHURCH; one, that its focus is to call people out of bondage and destruction of the world. Two, to equip and nurture the people. Three, to prepare the people so that they can be sent out to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with others. Finally, to understand, that Christ wants to add to His CHURCH daily through the power of the Holy Spirit.
It is time that we become part of Christ building program, to commit whole heartedly to Him, to be people who are “called out” from the world, different and unique one’s. To become part of His living body the CHURCH. The key is to “come out”, then to be equipped, so that we then can go back to others with the Goods News of Jesus Christ. Jesus wants us, to be connected with the Power of the Holy Spirit where we serve together as CALLED OUT ONE’S, to “calls out” more people to be part of Christ body the CHURCH.
Called as a Church, to work together as His church, where He has appointed to us various gifts so that we can plant, water, equip, nurture, and share the Good News of Jesus Christ to the lost world. Remember: We are called to “server together” as a community of believers in faith, under His headship.
Being connected in relationship with God and with each others as disciples of Jesus Christ comes by abiding in Him.
We as disciples must always remember that there will be times that we fail God and one another, but God is a God who restores (Psalm 23:3). Failure is not the end; we should turn failure into a teaching and maturing experience leading to more growth in Christ Jesus. When we call upon His name and confess our faults (shortcomings), He puts us back on our feet and exhorts us to keep moving forward in faith with Him.
It is important that all believers in Christ gather together as a body of servants to help and encourage one another. God is in the ministry of calling people together – why? So that we can minister to each other with the fruit & gifts of the Spirit. God is gathering a nation, gathering a harvest and will soon gather His Church. When Christ is lifted up, He will draw or gather all unto Himself (John 12:32; draw or gather). Gathering together is where Jesus presence, power and anointing is.
The disciple is challenge by Christ to be living BRANCHES and from that relationship, we then through pruning and time we will bear fruit that will last, for God’s glory, but if we are not fruit producers there is a warning. Question: When we think of different season, where is the church at when it comes to John 15:1-11 and Romans 11:16-25? Are we living branches of fruitfulness or fruitless branches or dead branches or branches that are going to be burned? Let’s look in the mirror of God’s Wo
