Contributing in building His church on earth demands the most important of all in our relationship with Him – love.


We see many houses around in different designs and sizes, from a simple small cheap house to an expensive mansion. Building a house involves two parties, the owner of the house and the workers who will build the house. When we look at the house, being constructed everything seems so easy. But when you get close to it and see the details, you will discover that it requires planning, various materials, skills, talent, experience, unified physical strength, determination and the will to be able to do it. 


The only difference between building a house and building the church is, the Owner or Master is the Lord Jesus, while the workers are us Christians. Jesus said: “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Matthew16:18. The Rock here is Christ “And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.” 1 Corinthians10:4.

The church we are building is us Christians. We reach out the lost for the Head of the church – Jesus! “And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.” Colossians1:18. The physical church is only a temporary place of refuge where the children of God is being gathered to study His words, to fellowship, to remember His suffering on the cross and prayers (Acts 2:42). 

Contributing in building His church on earth demands the most important of all in our relationship with Him – love. Without loving the Lord Jesus, you cannot share your time, skills, talent, resources and strength without getting worn out. Furthermore, without loving the Master, you cannot work in unity with other believers. Love brings unity among believers. Paul wrote to the Corinthian Church “And now abideth faith, hope,
charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity (love).” 1 Corinthians13:13. 


Therefore, as we are united together in building the church in love for the Lord Jesus’ sake, we can joyfully share together the best of what we have to bring glory to His name on this earth.

In His Service,
