Quit griping about your church


"Quit griping about your church;
if it was perfect, you couldn't belong …"
- Unknown

The modern church rejects the outcasts of society
where as these very outcasts were the very ones who were drawn to Jesus.
- Philip Yancey

"For our knowledge is imperfect and our prophecy is imperfect;
but when the perfect comes, the imperfect will pass away."
1 Corinthians 13:9-10

"God let it grow. It is not for those who plant and watered it, but only God who gives the increase. The planter and the one watering are working for the same end and or on an equal footing, each will receive pay for their own work and effort. They will have their separate rewards in the measure of their work. For we are God's co-workers, you are God's field or cultivated farm, God's building.
According to the grace given me by God, I have, as a wise master builder, laid the foundation on which another builds. But let everyone watch as or consider how he builds on that foundation. Because no one can lay a foundation other than what already is laid, namely Yeshua, Jesus Christ, the Messiah. "
1 Corinthians 3:6-11

“Join him, the Living Stone
rejected by men but chosen and precious in the sight of God. "
1 Peter 2:4

Help me, Lord, to remember that religion is not to be confined to the church...
nor exercised only in prayer and meditation,
but that every where I am in Thy Presence.
- Susanna Wesley
