Why Do We Need Church?
Simply put, Jesus came to transform the world – to sanctify it (to make it Holy). The Kingdom of God on earth is a transformed earth where God rules over all earthly existence in renewed relationship with all of God’s creation – A NEW CREATION - populated by redeemed children of God once again in perfect relationship with God and with each other and with the rest of creation.
Even though that vision seems so far away – don’t lose it.
The Church is the keeper of that vision.
That vision is why God incarnate, the enfleshed Word, Jesus the Christ lived, died and was resurrected! But that leads us to two very thought provoking questions:
- Would you agree that we are not there yet?
- Does that mean that Jesus failed?
