God's House

I visited another site that had a photo of a small church. It reminded me so much of a church built by my husband’s great-grandfather at Oakland, Missouri, near Lebanon. There aren’t as many trees nearby, but this is quite similar.

‘Keeping It Simple’ is also dedicated to sharing God’s love with a family. While few of us can have a church built, each of us can be part of building the church we attend. No church can continue without the membership doing their part.

More than two hundred verses speak of “the house of the Lord.” My favorite is:

I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD. (Psalms 122:1 KJV)

Our church doesn’t resemble the one above. It has more buildings, both are much larger. Ours is brick and metal, not wooden siding. They both display a cross – as a reminder of His sacrifice. They both are handicapped accessible – God is no respecter of persons.

Every member of every church has one thing in common:

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (Romans 3:23 KJV)

The only difference between us and non-believers is:

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: (Ephesians 2:8 KJV)

There is an open invitation – come, enjoy.

  1. Good post. If we all could stand on that common ground and forget about the unimportant stuff, how much we could do for our Lord.


Thank you for taking time to read and comment on the blog. Comments should take into consideration this verse: Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. (Philippians 4:8 KJV)
