The Church that Jesus built is comprised of those doing what they're called to do rather than what they thought they had to do to build their individual kingdoms, churches.

(1) We need to get to know our Groom Jesus by becoming loving of all people like He is. It does say, "as He is, so are we in this world" (in 1 John 4:17). We find out how the Son of God really is, by loving like He does. By experiencing what our Groom is feeling in loving all people, this makes us "soul-mate" with Jesus so we are compatible with Him so we can spend all eternity with Him. And having a special someone can help us know how it is for Him to have us as His Bride (o:

The Church that Jesus built...

Your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt, you shall raise up the foundation - they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations...
Repairer of the breach, restorer of streets to dwell in.

The Church that Jesus built...

Eccl 1:7

All the rivers run into the sea,
yet the sea is not full.
To the place from which the rivers come,
to there and from there they return again.

SOULS! the purpose of the church is to share Christ gospel and get souls ready for eternal life. we are to be "witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth" cities on hills, candles on pedistals thats us. when it stops being about souls either close the doors or put "county club" in your church name.

The Church that Jesus built is not a collection of emerging villages, emerging false social gospels for the seeker friendly.

The Church that Jesus Christ built is a powerful warhorse. Undefeatable.
The Lord will protect His flock from the dragon's fire.
It will have no power over God's Church.
The Church that Jesus built will set the captives free in the power of the Lord.

The Church that Jesus built...
for the Lord of hosts has visited His flock, the house of Judah, and will make them as His beautiful and majestic horse in battle.

And they shall be like the mighty men treading down their enemies in the mire of the streets in the battle, and they shall fight because the Lord is with them, and the oppressor's riding on horses shall be confounded and put to shame.

Zech 10

The gathering of God's people was, and has always been for corporate praise and worship, prayer, preaching of the Word, giving, encouragement, to excercies the use of spiritual gifts, to be accountable to one another and the leadership, to gather vision for battle and victory, to share our needs with others, to give testimonies of victories, and many more. We are told to do all these things individually and corporately. Those who don't do it are disobedient according to Heb.10:25.

IMO, it is to sharpen one another spiritually, fellowship with the brethren, hold each other accountable, edify one another, help carry one another's name a few. Unfortunately it's hard to do these days in the bigger churches, which is most likely why small groups were formed. And one thing I truly don't believe God ever intended it to be-a business. Orderly, yes. Business? Ugh.
