What is The Church?

Is it primarily a place where I punch the clock to let God know that I attended….

Is it primary a place where I go to consume religious entertainment….

Is it primarily a place where I get some needed services….

Is it primary a place where I get a taste of the coming kingdom….

Is it primarily a place that God uses to slowly change me into His likeness…

The question I have for preachers…

Is your preaching contributing to the mindset that is shown in the cartoon?

Or is it fostering that kingdom of God on this earth that the church can and should become?
