Today I have the privilege of writing for Deeper Church. It’s not a criticism; it’s a praise.
We’ve been loved, prayed for, fed, encouraged, held up, supported and blessed. This big, amazing church has done its job, representing Jesus so powerfully to us. It’s humbling to be on the receiving end, but also confirming.
Sure, there are hypocrites. Sure there are leaders who worship ego more than Jesus. Yes, sin abounds. But we’ll miss out on beauty if we only park on the negativity. Open your eyes today to see the beautiful bride of Christ. She may be a mess, but sometimes she shines like a pretty pearl.
