Neat Little Poem About the Church

Here’s a neat little poem that I found in an old Bulletin Digest. There’s no author given so to God be the glory (which should be a driving factor anyways).

Most people think the New Testament church is built of brick, wood and stone,

And after Sunday services stands empty and alone.

But God’s own church is made of souls who spread both far and wide,

The story of His wondrous love and Jesus crucified.

A living church – A family royal; with Christ the King to reign.

Which after stone and wood are gone forever will remain.

Have great day serving Jesus as a member of His kingdom, as a member of His body and as a member of His church.

Therefore it is also contained in the Scripture, “Behold, I lay in Zion a chief cornerstone, elect, precious, and he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame.” Therefore, to you who believe, He is precious; but to those who are disobedient, “The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone,” and “A stone of stumbling and a rock of offense.” They stumble, being disobedient to the word, to which they also were appointed. But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.” (1 Peter 2:6-10NKJV)
