00602 - The Church Is The Army Of God

The Church is not a gathering of passive spectators seeking entertainment but a vibrant community called to action. In the New Testament, the Church is depicted as a body with many parts, each uniquely equipped and purposed for collective action (1 Corinthians 12:12-27, NIV). 

This mission encompasses both the proclamation of the Gospel and meaningful social action. It's about living out the teachings of Christ in tangible ways, demonstrating love, compassion, and justice in our communities.

The Church is called to be an active force for good, embodying the love and grace of God in every action. It's a call to be salt and light in the world (Matthew 5:13-16, NIV), influencing society positively while holding fast to the truth of the Gospel. This dual focus on spiritual and social renewal makes the Church not an audience but an active, powerful, mobilised army for the glory of God.


Our time on earth should be used to further the Kingdom of God.


Father, thank You for Your Church. Help me build Your Kingdom through the Church. Amen.

Action Point

If you volunteer less than three hours in Church per week, see what else you can do.
