What is the Church?

Your lives are a letter written in our hearts; everyone can read it and recognize our good work among you. (2 Corinthians 3:2, NLT)

Richard Halverson, former chaplain of the United States Senate, said something about the church that is pertinent : "In the beginning the church was a fellowship of men and women centering on the living Christ. Then the church moved to Greece where it became a philosophy. Then it moved to Rome where it became an institution. Next, it moved to Europe, where it became a culture. And, finally, it moved to America where it became an enterprise."

Before you say a hearty “Amen!”. What is your church like? Is it all about ministry or is it about money and programmes? And what is your own Christian life like? Does it reflect the spirit of Jesus or of the world.
