Ever Lose Perspective?

This week I’ve heard pretty clearly from the Lord about a lot of things that have been pretty confusing for a while. One of those things was my perspective on church. It is so easy to become church-focused and church-centered. We work so hard to build a church and its ministries. The truth is, we’re building the “kingdom.” Many items we do to build our churches also build the kingdom – but our church is just a part of the whole. When we become church-centric we begin to shut out others, and narrow our field of vision so that we ignore those things that don’t deal with our church directly.

Keeping my eyes on the King and his kingdom…
