God didn’t create this world or come to this world so that you could be part of an organization.
He came, ‘Immanuel-God with us,’ so that you could be part of him and his purpose for your life.
Organizations will come and go, but his life in you is what he died and rose again for; Easter.
He looked forward, with joy, to the cross, the most heinous of deaths, for one reason; you. You are the prize that he couldn’t wait to attain. It is you that he deeply wants to have in his proximity and relationship. It is your attention that he wants.
It is yours and my selfishness, stubborn, and prideful autonomy that put him in that ‘compromised’ position in the first place. He came to reconcile that. He paid that price. It cost him everything so that you and I could have unprecedented access to his very presence, to him.
It’s a big deal! It is called worship.
Then, when you meet someone else who has the same passion, focus and desire, its called fellowship, intimate bonding and relating; church. It is so beautiful, so meaningful and precious. It is the fellowship of ‘God with us.’
Don’t waste it on a structure, a system, a method, a building or denomination. He didn’t come for that.
He came for you!
