Most of us occasionally ask ourselves: “What type of person am I? Who do I want to become?” or possibly “What do I want to do with my life?” When we strive to self-diagnose an issue or wonder about our chosen career path, we can miss the point entirely. To truly understand ourselves we must wrestle with difficult questions.
If we were to ask ten people to name the most important job in the world, we would hear ten different answers—and all of them could be right!
This has drawn me to ponder: If we are the church, the body of Christ, then what does it mean to live this out? Which calling, job, or position should I hope to attain?
I want us to know how to connect well with others in the church but, most important, in the real world. Over the next three Sundays we will identify who we are as the church. We will review the historical church and explore how the current church needs to teach and equip people to serve and minister in the current spiritual climate.
The Lord has placed each of us in this world to point others to Jesus. Plumber, musician, professor, student—we are all in this together. The “We Are the Church” series will draw us to Jesus and help us be his kingdom workers.
