Be the Church

I have been struggling with what I am going to talk about on Wednesday at church. It seems that whenever I see Pastor Jim, Julie, Jeremy, or Sara speak, they seem so confident in what they do, they seem to teach a lesson in such a way that moves us as God intended. I've been doing a lot of praying about it, a lot of listening, I come up with an idea, God's like... "No, Margie, Good lesson but not for you" and He steals my words! AH!

So, yesterday's (or maybe the day before) BG wrote about clothes and what people wear to church, and a lot of us had a lot of different ideas about it. Barefoot is still best, thank you very much.

And then the pictures came from Thailand. Yeah, I'm still misty. Adam wrote in there "Be the church"

Church isn't about a building, it's about love. It's about Jesus. I think I have it... now I just gotta find the scripture...

Hey God, it's me again, I am so glad You don't get tired of hearing from me and hang up the line. Lord, please use the "Thailanders" in big ways to move the way people think about You. Use them to change their lives. Lord, they have changed my life in such big ways. Only You could send them to Thailand and use them in our hearts. Thank You Lord. In Jesus' Name I pray. All God's kids say... AMEN.

I think your on to something. It was actually a good lesson for me to read the responses. What is the definition of the church? It certainly isn't the type of clothes being worn. Your going to do a great job. Praying for you!!

you have the only thing that is worth offering, Jesus. all you need to bring is a surrendered heart and you've got that down. go get 'em my sweet friend.
