THE CHURCH IS "THE BODY"
NOT "THE BUILDING"
[Watch instead of reading, below!]
Something that a you might have found confusing during our own Quarantine this year is "WHAT ABOUT CHURCH???" ... "We didn't get to go 'to church' for all those months!"
Christians sometimes forget but THE CHURCH IS THE PEOPLE! Romans 12:5 calls the Church "The Body of Christ" and First Corinthians calls it "one body." This is really special!
In the same way that a doctor takes care of our bodies, Jesus ("The Great Physician") cares for The Church! He died for our sins so that we might be saved from the sickness of sin. And after he rose from the grave and went back to heaven The Church was left here on earth to do the things he directed us to do: to show love, to teach what's right, and to grow closer to God. THAT'S what "Church" is. And we're meant to do those things whether we're INSIDE the church building or not!
In this next video, we'll learn a little bit more about how The Church is like the Body, which the "Great Physician" cares for. It's important, as followers of Christ, that we continue to BE the church in our communities so our part in the body is keeps the body healthy! That doesn't stop because we're not in the building!
