Church Indestructible

I will soon have lived 53 years, but Iíve never possessed anything that was indestructible.

As a young child, wind-up toys and Tonka heavy equipment were my favorites. But the wind-ups eventually broke forcing the Jack-in-the-box to stay in his box. And the trucks and earth movers eventually stopped moving and the tires wobbled off. Chains on my favorite bicycles broke, and the handlebars rusted. Holes appeared in my favorite Converse tennis shoes, and scratches materialized on my best record albums.

Destruction followed me into the teenage and adult years. My first car accumulated too many miles, eventually showed the effects of aging, and had to be traded for a newer model. Lawn mowers died and required repairs that were too cost prohibitive. At the moment, my baby book is probably the only thing Iíve owned since birth-and even that is someday doomed to deteriorate.

But Jesus told one of his disciples about something that would last forever-the church. Now I say to you that you are Peter (which means Ďrockí), and upon this rock I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it (Matthew 16:18 NLT).

What was indestructible wasnít Peter or any of his descendants. Nor was it the Protestantism, Catholicism, or Anglicanism that the church eventually evolved into. The rock of indestructibility was Peterís confession that Jesus was the MessiahÖthe anointed One who would make the ultimate and final sacrifice for humanityís sins.

Godís church is composed of any and everyone who makes a similar confession. When we join it, we become part of a living organism built and powered by God. Of all the things we hold dear that will eventually quit on us, Godís church never will. Join the indestructible force.

Prayer: Thank You Father for creating an entity that the forces of evil or nature cannot destroy. www.lovelinesfromgod.com
