What is the Church? How well do we really understand it? We know it is not a building. It is not some kind of “club.” Some might even think of the church as some type of “hospital” for the sick. But, what Is the church? The acrostic below might help us better understand the true nature of the Lord’s Church. Look up the Scriptures (in context) for yourself and ponder their meaning in terms of the Lord’s Church and your place in the body.
C Christ is her Savior and Head
H Holy Spirit is her power and helper
R Rightly dividing (correctly handling) the word is her charge
2 Timothy 2:15
God has blessed us with the Scriptures so that we can better know that of which we are a part, thanks to the saving blood of Jesus Christ.
