It’s Not About The Dwelling  

January 17
Daily Reading – Genesis 35-36 / Matthew 12:1-14

WHAT GOD HAS SAID:

Matthew 12:6 But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the temple.


WHAT I HAVE SEEN:

    As Pastor, I am grateful for the place God provided for our Church to meet. However, at times I’ve almost been scolded for saying the building is a building, and the Church fills it. Don’t get me wrong, I think we should respect and treat with care God’s House where we meet. However, when all is said and done, its wood, brick, shingles, and siding.

    Jesus made a similar statement in Matthew 12:6. It’s not about the dwelling, it’s about the dweller. A building without God’s saved people is not a church. Just as a person without Christ in their heart is not a Christian.


WHAT DO YOU SAY:

  What matter most, Dweller or Dwelling?
