Heart connections change lives. Are they encouraged anywhere besides funeral homes & support groups? Yes, in ekklesia!
Ekklesia isn’t another word for church. It’s a very different way for Christians to meet together.
Some people want to argue about the Bible. I’d rather read & obey it & let it burn in my heart & change my life! Instead of chillin’ in the fridge, let’s heat up in God’s spiritual oven.
Is it possible that too much organization can turn the body of Christ into an institutional robot? Let’s meet & do the Bible: pray for the sick; cast out demons; love our enemies; etc. Christ-followers are called to be and to do more than church as usual.
We don’t need programs & talks about our spouse, so why do we try to relate to Jesus, our Heavenly Spouse, that way? When a group gathers for unstructured time with Christ; like a kaleidoscope, He creates beautiful patterns.
Jesus calls us to walk in the light, not to hide in the night. He calls people to follow and obey Him as much on Sunday afternoon as He does on Sunday morning.
This book can help you find heart connections in ekklesia. It’s called Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible–Ekklesia. It’s available at this link.
