And He gave Him to be head over all things to the church,

  which is His body.

   (Ephesians 1:22)

 

People often make fun of the church, calling Christians hypocrites. The amazing thing about this is that when real trouble comes, no one sneers at the church then. Some of you might have come from a background that gave you a low opinion of the church. I am fortunate to have been reared in a church that was truly a church. You should want that for yourself as well. You should want to be where both the pillar and foundation is the Lord Jesus Christ.
