God wants to raise us as a lineage of prototype believers, an example to other believers and one important way this will happen is for us to take our gatherings seriously. Hebrews 10:24-25.
This is how we get better, by provoking one another unto love and good works. We shouldn’t just be devoted and consecrated for ourselves, but as an example for others.
Hebrews 10:25. Those who forsake the gathering of believers are doing the wrong thing.
Physical gathering will always be God’s idea. We define church God’s way.
There must be ministry gifts, a pastor.
A mature Christian is submitted to authority.
We must have a responsibility and contribution to the body of Christ.
We must be supplying joints.
Acts 19:20. The word of God will always grow at the expense of something else – ideas against the word of God. The message of Jesus on the cross is not a secret, we must position it well for all to see. We must learn to compete for the faith, the gospel must win, Jude :3. We have to see what we are up against; strongholds, imaginations, knowledge, and thoughts, and the way to win is by prayer and taking action.
