Schaeffer: Christian sociology

Friday, February 24, 2017
    Brothers, stop thinking like children. In regard to evil be infants, but in your thinking be adults.
    —1 Corinthians 14:20 (NIV)
    This is the real Church of the Lord Jesus Christ—not merely organization, but a group of people, individually the children of God, drawn together by the Holy Spirit for a particular task either in a local situation or over a wider area. The Church of the Lord Jesus should be a group of those who are redeemed and bound together on the basis of true doctrine.

Quiet time reflection:
    Heal us, Lord.
