There is a great difference in excellency, usefulness, and comfort between people of clear, digested knowledge, and confused, undigested apprehensions. -Richard Baxter

For Christ’s sake, love your Mother

If you love Christ, you will love his word. If you love Christ’s word, you will love his church. We dare not mock or treat as dispensable that for which Christ died. As the church, we are the bride of Christ. Let us labor, therefore, to make it our own, since Christ himself has made us his own (Phil. 3:12).

Justin Taylor has a brief piece on the relationship of Christ to His Church.  It’s one more voice speaking against the increasingly fashionable choice to withhold commitment from a local Body of believers.  She’s your Mother, complete with imperfections, but the One for whom Christ died.
