Halverson: come to church?

Sunday, November 17, 2013
    Feast of Hugh, Carthusian Monk, Bishop of Lincoln, 1200
    [Jesus:] “Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.”
    —Luke 6:36 (NIV)
    Nowhere in the Bible is the world exhorted to “come to church.” But the church’s mandate is clear: she must go to the world... the work of the ministry belongs to the one in the pew, not the one in the pulpit.
    ... Richard C. Halverson (1916-1995), The Timelessness of Jesus Christ, Regal Books, 1982, p. 104 (see the book)
    See also Luke 6:36; Prov. 3:3-4; Joel 2:28-31; Matt. 24:14; 28:19-20; Rom. 12:6-8; 2 Cor. 5:18-19; Col. 1:28
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may the ministry of Your people to the world prosper and increase.
