The Congregation The Club And The Church | cfcindia, Bangalore
Ephesians 5:25 says, " Christ loved the church and gave Himself for it". There is no way to build the Church without personal sacrifice. It was a great sacrifice that Jesus made when He came from heaven to earth. He sacrificed comfort and ease and lived in poverty. But above all, He gave Himself.
Don't ever imagine that you can build a New Covenant Church without paying a price. Those who want to build the Church, but don't want to make any sacrifice of money or personal convenience, will only build aCongregation or a Club.The true Church cannot be built without sacrifice. Christ gaveHimself to build it. We too will have to give up our "Self" to join Him in building it.
