Christ Our Ground

What God and heaven are looking for and at is not something called “Church,” nor for local “churches,” as such. God and Heaven are looking for Christ, in His nature, heavenly nature; in spirit and truth; in life, conduct and behavior; in virtues and character; in influence and impact; and in victory over sin, Satan and the world.

It is positively not locality in terms of geography, but “Wheresoever two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I.” That may be on a ship or in an airplane, neither of which can be fixed in locality. It is Christ which defines the Church, not the place! Christ may be in the congregation, the institution, the denomination, while none of them – as a whole – may be in Christ. We seek Him. We gather unto Him. He is the Ground; we meet on Him.
