As an evangelist, I like to find out how well people know their pastor.
Sometimes, I’ll ask a member, “What color are your pastor’s eyes?”

One member said, “Well, I really can’t tell ya. When he prays, he
closes his eyes. And, when he preaches, I close mine.”

1 Tim 3:14-15
14 These things write I unto thee, hoping to come unto thee shortly:
15 But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to
behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the
living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.

LIGHT from the WORD.

Jesus Christ Himself is “the Pillar and Ground of the truth.”
The “church of the Living God,” is to PRESENT that truth to the world!

The church is the “house of God,” or congregation.
The members are those who have openly confessed faith and trust
in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

Jesus is the Creator of all things (See John 1:1-3, Heb. 1:1-3)

Jesus formed and founded the church through His sacrifice
on the cross.
(See Eph. 5:25-27, Col. 1:18)

The main function of the church, then, is to present Christ
to the world.

We are, under God’s authority and plan, directed to show the world:
WHO Jesus is, and
WHY Jesus came.

The only manner in which we can perform that function is to exhibit
the love Christ has for the world THROUGH the performance of our lives
IN the church!!

How are you behaving in your church?
Are you sleeping?
Or, are you SHOWING God's love?

Love ya!
