A simple scan of the Bible reveals one unwavering fact… God loves His church!
No verse makes that any clearer than Ephesians 3:10 (NIV)
“His intent was that now, THROUGH THE CHURCH, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms.”
Isn’t that amazing?! THROUGH THE CHURCH, the wisdom of God, the plan of God is made known.
The angels stand amazed and the earth is transformed by the grace of God manifested THROUGH THE CHURCH. The name of Jesus is made famous in the entire world THROUGH THE CHURCH! People come to know Jesus and make Him known THROUGH THE CHURCH. That’s God’s eternal plan.
Why would God choose us? We’re imperfect. We make mistakes. We don’t always get it right. But we’ve been forgiven and set free. We have been made new and raised to life in Christ. We understand His inexplicable grace, who better than those who’ve experienced the power of God’s grace to tell others about it. It’s the magnificence of His plan. He chose to use the Church! How amazing is that?
What’s humbling about all of that is to realize that God has destined Life Point Church to be a megaphone of His wisdom and plan to our part of the city and ultimately the world. This is where you come in. To fulfill this vision, God is calling us to join together and believe in Him for the resources to build the first phase of our new Life Point Campus on FM 1560.
If God made His church the megaphone to declare His plan of salvation, He must have a heart for His house! The Psalmist said in Psalm 69:9 . . .”a zeal for your house has consumed me.” Will you let Him stir in you that same passion to expand the impact and influence of His house? As followers of Jesus Christ we need to love what He loves, build what He builds and advance what He advances; by doing so we will build a church that declares God’s wisdom and purpose to our world.
