Lent 5: Church is where one goes, not something one is. The cares of the world and the mission of the church is left at the door — sometimes going in AND going out.
When we see ourselves as ‘church’ and when church is about being rooted in Christ and teamed together with others for the sake of the kingdom; we begin to understand that we’re into and onto something big.
“I am church” is much more. “I am church” about who we are. “We are church” is an all the way through identity. “I am church” is the essence of our inner being, our inner commitment. Being Church is the fruit of the essence of being deeply connected, rooted in Jesus, and filled with Jesus. “We are church” is at the heart of who we are as God’s people.
