Today is Monday, 4 April in the year 2022, and our bible verse of the day will be taken from the book of Acts 2:41-42.
And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.Acts 2:41-42.
The above scriptural text shows the origin of the Christian church, therefore our bible verse of the day for April 4 2022 is going to aim at answering the question: What Is A Church According To The Bible?
Definition of a church according to the bible.
When we use our main method to interpret the bible; which is reading the bible in it’s whole context.
We will realize that the proper definition for the church is a place where Christians gather to continue steadfastly in the apostles doctrine and fellowship.
This doctrine and fellowship includes the breaking of bread, exhortation, prayers and moreover the sharing of belongings equally to all the members.
In Ephesians 2:19-22, the bible likens Christians as individual bricks that is used to construct a big building for God.
Overview of the church today.
When we look at the overview of the church today; we will realize that the apostles doctrine and fellowship is no longer in vogue.
Consequently, today, instead of members selling their properties; and bringing them to be shared equally among other members as we see in Acts 4:32-35.
The members drop offerings which is carted away by the charismatic leader or leaders.
The only way for us to have the church again; is for all the denominations to learn how to see themselves as different parts that makes up the body of Christ.
