There is a place of safety and it is the church. When the world is so confusing, we can find peace in the church. What comprises a church? It is more than a building, or a grand cathedral. It is so much more than a hut, or a brush arbor as it was in the early days. It is more than a tent which was carried from location to location. The church was built upon a rock.
With the pandemic, people have had to go out of their comfort zones, and although we don’t meet in a building, we don’t miss our time of worship and praise. Today, we celebrate the Resurrection and what does that means for us as believers? We are free to worship. Jesus paid the price of our salvation at Calvary.
“And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16:18).
We have a promise from God that he will have a glorious church. In Ephesians 5:27, the bible says, “That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.”
If we will learn to rise above our circumstances and use this time to reset our priorities, and make our way back to the Lord; then, we win!
This song has been a blessing through the years, and I wanted to share it with you. Brother Bobby Taylor, from the Pentecostals of Greenville, NC, sings.
Indeed, where would we be? In this week’s Lattereign, consider this question:
Stay safe and be blessed.
