Today, I want to show you three expressions of the Church that explain what God is doing when He brings you to a church.
1. THE CHURCH AS A BUILDING
Jesus likened the Church to a building. We are all like living stones being built together into a house as born-again believers. God sees His people as stones He wants to use to construct great destiny edifices. You will never become what you are to be while you are complaining about the divine process; even though it will not be easy on your flesh. God wants to finish everything as any great craftsman does.
The church is where God processes and refines people to be what He intends for them.
2. THE CHURCH AS A FACTORY
The church is a factory and there are all kinds of productive noises going on in a factory. God is looking for a divine factory where stones are cut into His specifications to fit what He wants to build with their lives (1 Pet. 2:4-5). God is the one that reshaped the vessel that was spoilt in the hand of the potter into a vessel as it pleased Him in Jeremiah 18. God can turn your mistakes into miracles for your destiny to happen, only if you make yourself available for His shaping hand.
3. THE CHURCH AS A SHOWROOM
When God finishes in the factory, He brings you to the showroom. The showroom is where God displays His skills in the lives of men. God wants to boast of your life; He wants to use it as an attraction to the world. People are fed up with all kinds of failures and shortcomings here and there, and God wants to use His children, the Christians, as an attraction. The Church is the centre to inject the value that is lacking in the community makeup to balance the community.
PRAYER: Make me, mould me, try me, and refine me Lord into the vessel You want me to be in Jesus’ name. Amen!
