Until everyone has gotten a fair chance to understand and decide whether or not they will accept Jesus, the work of the church is not yet done.
So, what can we do when we need to be the church, but it can't be the same as before?
What do we do when a source of strength is no longer available?
While we would do well to remember that our fellow human beings have a finite amount of time an energy, there is One whose resources are limitless.
We don't get to decide how to encounter God. Only He can make that decision.
Most Christians would recognize an idol in the shape of a man or an animal, but are there other forms that an idol can take?
How can we reconcile the structure of individual congregations with our personal ministry obligations?
In our busy lives, there is a secret (albeit not a well-hidden one) to finding the strength that we need to get through another week.
What if every follower of Jesus had such a positive and lasting impact on his or her community that no one would have to think twice when asked "Where is the church?"
What does it mean that Jesus is the Head of the church (which itself is described as the Body of Christ)?
Let us make the furthering of the Kingdom of God a celebration (no matter who is introducing people to Jesus), and not a competition.
The fact that you were created uniquely means that your exact role in life can't be replaced by anyone else.
Being part of a group of like-minded believers has a lot of advantages for us, but what does the rest of the world get out of it?
The call for us each to contribute to the church (the body of Christ) isn't just a suggestion. The rest of the body needs each of us, from the smallest to the greatest.
Since we have to eat, let's make the most of our meal times.
