We love our church buildings. We love to point out how cool they are. How beautiful the carpet is. How nice the steeple is. How great the technology is.
Jesus wasn't really into that. I think if I walked Jesus through our church and tried to tell him about our building he would be so insanely bored. But I think if I walked Jesus through our church and told him about how we're trying to live out his commands, he would be excited. Buildings are nice, but they are tools. If/When I do a church plant or pastor a church, I almost hope that we're portable. JM
