Salvation and Church ~ by Mena Lee Grebin, 10/27/19

Salvation is NOT based on what “Church” (man’s definition of four walls and a steeple attached to a denomination) you attend.

It is based on a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and the manifestation of His fruit (the fruit of the Spirit) in your life.

The scripture, “forsake not the assembly of ourselves together”  (Hebrews 10:25) did not specify a schedule or where one is suppose to fellowship.

The first century Church did not go to a Church building on Sundays (first of all because Sunday isn’t even the Sabbath), nor did they necessarily meet every week.

And when they did meet, it was mostly in homes.  As persecution of the believers increased, there were times that they couldn’t meet at all.

Therefore, the Apostle Paul wrote letters of prayer, correction, and encouragement; many times from behind prison walls.

I say all of this to remind you that the TRUE church of Jesus Christ is not a building, nor a denomination.  God Himself said that His temple is not built with human hands.

The Church of Jesus Christ is a movement of people under One Lord, One Faith, and One Baptism.  This is the church that the gates of hell cannot prevail against.

All else are vanities that produce division and confusion, and in the end, leads to deception.

You can worship God and assemble yourselves as often as need be.  Every day is a day that The LORD has made, and we should each walk as the salt and light that Christ commissioned us to be.

Jesus said, “Where two or three gather in My name, there I AM in the midst of them.”   Matthew 18:20.

So Love The LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your might.  Then love your neighbor as yourself, and the scales will fall off of your eyes, so that you will be able to see.

Spiritual Food for Thought…..
