#NT75 Day 38: Ephesians 4-6 Church is for Transformation

What's the point of church?

That's an easy one.  It's the transformation of the individual until he or she looks like Jesus.  That's what Ephesians 4 says.  God gave certain groups of leaders (apostles, prophets, evangelists, and pastor-teachers) to equip the saints for ministry so that the Body of Christ will be built.

Built into what?

Built into the image of Christ.  Built until we all reach a unity of the faith and knowledge of the Son of God, because that's what it looks like to be a mature believer and follower of Jesus.

Church is for transformation.

We, as a church family at Heritage Park, talk about that all the time.  I tell our new members about it. In fact, I tell them that if they're the same people 2 years from now as they are when they came, they need to find a new church family because we have failed them.

Church is for transformation.  Repeat after me:  church is for transformation.

Lord, let it be.  Amen.
