Church Community

I was reading Colossians Chapter 3 today and this thought came to me

If we only went to church with people we liked or got a long with it wouldn't be a church, it'd be a clique.  The body of Christ is diverse and not clean cut.  It is a place where transformation, restoration & reconciliation are taking place daily.  We are not to stand in judgement of those we share rows or pews with but our focus is to be on the Gospel of Jesus and allowing Grace, Truth & Freedom to thrive.  The guiding of Holy Spirit is the only way healthy leadership can keep churches from turning inward from the world as well as inward toward the flesh.
