“With all lowliness and meekness, with long-suffering, forbearing one another in love.” Ephesians 4:2
God created us all as a complete product, just like every manufacturer produces quality and working product. However, we cannot function as God almighty. Hence we have our imperfect nature within us. The earlier we admit that we are imperfect people seeking the perfect God for our perfection, the better it is for our transformation to come.
The Body of Christ, in general, is a place for sinners who need grace and want to grow to become like Christ. This is the truth. After all, we should be able to see ourselves as sinners living by grace because we are not perfect. Therefore, the church is a place where we can find the right person to help us grow into our true selves and become more like Christ. So If you are struggling with your relationship with God, then I would recommend joining the church.
Believers should know that divorcing a church at the first sign of disappointment or disillusionment isn’t appropriate. There are numerous lessons to learn; God has things He wants to teach you and others by staying together. You can’t choose to jump classes by divorcing a church; you’re only postponing leasing and delaying transformation. If you want to stay together, you need to be open-minded about what kind of church you want to go.
We are the church, and we are not perfect. Hence, there’s no perfect church. Every admirable and desirable church you see out there is a house of imperfect people who have committed themselves to the growth of the church. So when we come together, we come to be fixed. We come to learn the kingdom’s culture. We come to look unto the perfect God for perfection. This is the true beginning of building a real community of believers. So stay and grow the church. Ephesians 2:10 says, “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance as our way of life.
I pray for the grace to stay where God has placed me in Jesus’ name.
