Many churches today have become cluttered, so cluttered that people have a difficult time encountering the simple and powerful message of Christ. So cluttered that many people are busy doing church instead of being the church. Jesus Christ provided a simple vision and purpose for the church and they are found in Matthew 22:34-40 (what we call the Great Commandment) and Matthew 28:19-20 (what we call the Great Commission).
April Memory Verse
“Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.”
