A Christ centered life more than a church centered life.
I can very well know the way to the church and may be the best person to guide others all through the church because of my familiarity with the place, yet it may happen that I may not know the Lord Jesus Christ so very well, in Whose name we gather in the church and to Whom we sing praises in the church.
Judas Iscariot, the disciple who betrayed the Lord, knew every place the Lord went, yet failed to know the Lord Himself.
“And Judas, who betrayed Him, also knew the place; for Jesus often met there with His disciples.” John 18:2 NKJV
In the book of Job it is mentioned that the devil has access to come into the presence of the Lord, yet what a pitiful state that he does not know the Lord God (knows and accepts the goodness of the Lord God).
The membership and attendance register at the church and the number of prayers and offering I have offered is not going to decide my destiny in heaven. It will be decided based on my relationship with the Lord Jesus and how due to this my life has changed to bring glory to the Lord God.
We often volunteer to direct the people to the church and to place of worship, it is a very good and noble deed, yet more blessed would be if we able to lead them to the Lord through our life, counsel and encouragement, however for that we first need to ensure that we know the Lord and our destiny is safe in Christ as did Paul…
“Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, ….. that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death.”
Philippians 3:8-10 NKJV
Let’s endeavor to know Him more and live a Christ centered life more than a church centered life.
