Title: Why I Love The Church


1
Why I Love The Church
  • Matthew 1613-20

2
I. I Love The Church because I love its founder
  • Ephesians 525 Christ loved the church and gave
    himself up for her.

3
  • Three Biblical symbols depicting Jesus
    inseparable relationship to the church
  • 1. Building on a foundation. (1 Pet
    25-6) "you also, like living stones, are being
    built into a spiritual house to be a holy
    priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices
    acceptable to God through Jesus ChristWho is the
    chosen and precious cornerstone.

4
  • 2. The head and the body. (Ephesians 523).
  • A groom who loves his bride.

5
  • (Eph 525-27) "Husbands, love your wives, just
    as Christ loved the church and gave himself up
    for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the
    washing with water through the word, and to
    present her to himself as a radiant church,
    without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish,
    but holy and blameless.
  • (John 329) "The bride belongs to the
    bridegroom. The friend who attends the bridegroom
    waits and listens for him, and is full of joy
    when he hears the bridegroom's voice. That joy is
    mine, and it is now complete."

6
II. I Love The Church because I love the people
in the church.
  • Simon Peter was imperfect yet
  • - He was given the keys to the kingdom
  • - He was promised whatever he bound on earth
    would be bound in heaven.

7
III. I Love The Church because of its positive
influence.
  • . . .the gates of Hades will not prevail against
    it. Matthew 1618

8
  • . . .the general principles on which the fathers
    achieved Independence were the general principles
    of Christianity. President John Adams
