I think most Christians would agree that Jesus Christ is the centre and foundation of the church. He is our vision, our standard and our hope just to name a few of the things he is to us. I also think that hardly anyone really knows how to give this simple truth and practical meaning.
I look at too many Christian websites and see a statement that says Christ is their foundation but find no other mention of our Lord anywhere else on the site. We all know that Jesus is the heart of our faith. we know he saved us but we have very little idea what that really means.
Recently a brother in my church said something so simple and obvious I had never heard it before.
‘If Jesus is the most important thing in our lives we need to be interested in him.’
It sounded like a great starting place.
