God is in the House
What makes the church – the people of God – distinctive in the world is God’s presence. Apart from the revealed presence of God in the midst of the church, we are just another club or organization. Church was never intended to be a place where we serve God or have our needs met to the exclusion of meeting with God, and the church is the only place on earth where God promised to reveal His glory. We gather as a church to know God’s presence in our midst.
No one would go to Burger King if they didn’t have burgers and there is no reason for church if God is not there. No personal quiet time, no Christian book, no small group or ministry can substitute for God coming to meet with His people corporately.
When the church gathers, God must be the centre of matters. He must be the main attraction. Church is for God, about God, through God and to the glory of God. It’s when we meet with God and see His glory revealed that lives are radically changed.
“Is it not in your going with us, so that we are distinct, I and your people,from every other people on the face of the earth?” (Exodus 33:16 ESV)
