All In

1 Corinthians 12:27

God greatest invention is the local church – and if you’re a Jesus follower, by default, you’re part of it. We are ‘the body of Christ’ (1 Corinthians 12:27) and Jesus IS the Head of the Body, the Church (Colossians 1:18).

This new year, lets’ be like the early church that we see in Acts – a church that was DEVOTED to the Gods word, to fellowship (hanging out with each other), to communion and to prayer (Acts 2:42). They didn’t do it because they had to, or because it was a helpful addition to their already busy lives. They DEVOTED themselves because they recognised that Jesus was ‘all-in’ when He gave Himself for the church. The early church’ devotion speaks of passion, love and zeal for Gods house. I think it could be said of this church that they were ‘all in’!
In 2021, lets’ ask God to give us fresh vision and love for the church, for His house so that we may be ‘all in’ again this year. He knows we need it, and He gave Himself for it. He gave his best so we could take our seat in His house, find our people, and bring our real.

Questions

  • How do I know that I belong to the church? 
  • Who are the people I do life with within the local church? How can I do this better this year?
  • What might stop me from being real? What does it look like for me to bring my real to church?
