Topic: The Church (12/06/07)

We are The Church. We are not made of brick or stone, but flesh and blood; sweat and tears; laugher and love, you and I – His Body, here on earth.

We are as different as night and day, as diverse as the snowflakes that fall.
But we have this thing in common: Him: God. We are His. And He has called us to bear fruit, fruit that remains. We are to bear one another’s burdens. We MUST go into all the world and tell this Good News, THE Good News! So many are just waiting to hear…for everyone who rejects, there is another one longing to know.

What has happened to His Body today? Did we forget about love? Have we forsaken forgiveness? How can we produce without the main ingredients? Have we grown weary? We must remember and return…and BE The Church Triumphant once again! And we will…for God will always have a people, a people called The Church, His Church!

…I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Mt. 16:18b

Short but VERY powerful. Thanks for these thoughtful words.

With passion you present your case...we ARE the church! This is short but to the point--good work. You could use some help with punctuation and I would work on it to increase the impact of your writing. Good job! Christmas blessings! :)

Who ever said you have to have hundreds of words to say anything worthwhile? Well, whoever it was, this writer has proved them wrong. Brilliance comes in Brevity! I gained knowledge, wisdom, insight, truth, facts, trust, love, fulfillment and a new outlook on The Church. First Class writing! Kudos!

I loved your first paragraph with its series of contrasts, and your snowflakes metaphor. Parts of the next two paragraphs were pretty heavy on "Christian-ese"--can you find new ways to express those thoughts, similar to the opening of your piece?

Lots of good stuff in this little devotional.

Really like your strong, positive statements. Kept feeling this was really a poem trying to come out.

Good work, a little tweaking and you have an excellent piece. You said all that needed to be said.
