Getting Christ Outside the Church Building

Getting Christ Outside the Church Building

By Keith Bellamy

It is a known face that the early church had no church buildings. They met in homes and sometimes they met in an undisclosed place because of persecution.

I wonder if we can get Christ outside the church building? By that I mean, is our Christianity relegated to the church building? Is this why so many people are turned off to Christianity?

So often, I hear some who make comments that I don’t attend church because there are phonies there. Is that true?

Or is just another way to make an excuse for not wanting anything to do with Christianity?

I think there must have been phonies in the early church. But it didn’t stop people from doing what they needed to do for Christ.

Do we understand we are the only Christ people will see? That’s kind of scary isn’t it?

Notice Paul’s words in 2 Corinthians 3:2, 3. “You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everyone. You show you are a letter from Christ sent through us. This letter is not written with ink but with the Spirit of the living God. It is not written on stone tablets but on human hearts” (NCV).

I believe those early Christians were known by their example!

What about you?
