Measure the Body

What is the measure of the local body of Christ of which you fellowship?

Is it butts, budgets & buildings?

Or is it the blossoming fruit of His Spirit?

The former is perishing.

The latter is thriving.

The former loses the culture.

The latter redeems the time.

The former succumbs to sin.

The latter overcomes through Him.

The former changes little.

The latter is a surging, inner fountain.

Cannot you have both the inner AND the outer?

You must have Him, even if you have nowhere to lay your head.


What is your measure?

Which is your treasure?
