As my readers know, I write about the church. Duh. The name of my blog is “The Assembling of the Church.” I am very interested in the church. But, the church is not my primary interest. My primary interest is Jesus Christ.
When Paul, or Peter, or John, etc. wrote about the church, they wrote from the perspective of Jesus Christ being the foundation. Not only was he the foundation of right belief, but he was also the foundation of right practice – a right way of life. What we think about God, the world, and ourselves is forever changed by the person of Jesus Christ. Similarly, the way we treat and interact with others is forever changed by the person and continued work of Jesus Christ.
The church is important because Jesus is important. But, Jesus remains primary.
