Genuine And Joyful From The Inside Out

#19 - IT TAKES A CHURCH TO MAKE A CHRISTIAN

Speaker
Rev. Don Horban
Scripture
James 5:13 - 20

#19 in the series "James - Soundness Of Soul"

It's significant that all of James' closing remarks deal with different aspects of the corporate responsibility of each believer. He winds up by talking about church - what it's all about - how to maximize its potential. There are lots of Christians who dont appreciate their need of the body of Christ and regular fellowship with other Christians. 



What's the big deal about coming to church frequently and consistently? The New Testament says the big deal is you were created for dependency, not only on the Lord, but also, and perhaps especially, on the other members of the Church. You and I never rise above dependency on the other members of the body of Christ. Without the church you're just a big hand trying to walk, or a big foot trying to play the violin, or a big blind ear bumping into the walls of life.


In short, Jesus said we were to love each other in exactly the way He loved us. That's what these verses at the conclusion of James are all about. I think people are dying for a church like that.
