God's Church

I ran across this video this morning from Sojourn and was very moved by it. One thing I admire about churches like Mars Hill and Sojourn is that they reach out to people with severe problems. Honestly, these are people that I would not normally talk to or spend time with, but it seems that more often than not, these types of people are the people that Christ is calling out to and saving in powerful ways.

Maybe reading about Jesus teaching and drawing tax collectors to Himself doesn't resound with us, but replace "tax collector" with "drug addict" or "porn addict" and then maybe it will resound more. Christ is building His church, and it probably won't be full of people just like you. It may be full of people whom without Christ, you would never talk to or associate with. I love videos like this and think every church should try to do something similar to encourage and lift up the body with the works of God in the lives of His people.
