THE Church & you {Part 2}

THE Church & you {Part 2}

This is the conclusion of the message started yesterday; see part 1 here
Jesus Asked Who Men say that I am? {QUESTION OF IDENTITY OF JESUS}
Peter answered: “Thou Are Christ “The revelation of the Identity of Christ.

What does the Identity of Christ symbolize?
ü Lord: can be seen as the master that rules over all.
ü Emmanuel :which also means "God with us” ; symbolizes the presence of God the Father
ü Messiah: one that delivers and liberates.
ü Saviour: To save from trouble and harm.
ü The Son of God: The Second in the Trinity
ü The Lamb of God: The sacrifice of God for Us.
ü The Good Shepherd: The Guardian that guide & protect.
ü the Redeemer: The one that Buys Us Back from Bondage
ü the Prince of Peace: Brings peace and Calm to all trouble
ü Wonderful: Great, Magnificent & Superb.
ü Counselor: Teaches and show the way
ü The Mighty God: Manifestation of the Power of God the Father.                                                                                    {Isa9:6-7}

The church In You; can be described as the development of your spirit man.
v This comprised of those who belong to Christ and who have trusted Him for salvation.
v These set of people seeks fellowship and edification in a local church.
v Many believers have lost the true meaning of the Church of God.
Some of the Wrong Notions of the Church are:

·      As a Religious practice.
·      As a Social gathering.
·      As their Pastor’s domain.
·      As the place to flaunt their clothes and body.

God did not establish the church as these.
. . . and upon this rock I will build my church; . . . {Mat 16:18}
Take Note of this verse; Jesus Said: “My Church” And :
ü Not Your Church
ü Not the Pastor or Reverend or Bishop’s Church
ü Not the Witches’ Church
ü Not the Business men’s Church
ü Not the Politician’s Church
ü Not the Devil’s Church.
ü Not Any Man’s Church.
It is Jesus Church; it is a Church that must have its foundation on the Identity of Christ.

"Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you."{Luke 17:21}
o  The Church of God is not the Building and the structures.
o  The Church of God is not the Congregation.
The Church Of God Is In You
ü How are you allowing Jesus to build His Church In You?
ü Are You hindering Jesus in any way?
ü Is it that you have even banned Jesus from the premises of your life? Then How will Jesus build ?
ü Have you converted Your Pastor To Jesus; Build In You.
The Pastor Cannot Build a Church by himself ; except by Jesus.
Don’t Be A Prey, Victim or Slave to any Pastor.
The Kingdom is in you;  Let Christ Build his Church In You,
Why You Still Need The Physical Church?
Ø To sharpen your spiritual blade. Iron Sharpeneth  Iron.
Ø Jesus was also frequent in the church.
"Jesus went back to Nazareth, where he'd been brought up and as usual he went to the meeting place on the Sabbath"{Luke 14:6}
Ø The bible says we should not forsake the Church.
"Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching." {Heb 10:25}
Ø It serves as a positive example to also bring in unbelievers.
Ø It is a medium to give Joy and encouragement; especially when you are down.
Ø It is a source of protection from the demonic forces of evil and sin in this world.
Ø It Promotes Spiritual Growth.
