The Point Of Church Is Journeying Together To God

January 11, 2017

“We are wrong to define only the Sunday morning event as church, and to treat small groups as an option, as an add-on that some might want to do in addition to ‘going to church.’ I prefer to think of the preaching/worship service as an important time in itself, as an opportunity to encounter God, but also as preparation for spiritual community, as a prelude to journeying more closely together in the right direction. Both define church.

The point of church is journeying together to God.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Becoming a True Spiritual Community, Page 165

Questions for Reflection:
• Is your tendency to think of church as programs that you attend or as relationships in which you help one another embrace truths that deepen your love for God and others?
• Is anything currently hindering you from “journeying together to God”?
• Are there any deliberate changes that the Holy Spirit’s asking you – to make to your priorities or schedule or relationships -so that you can strength your involvement in spiritual community?
