Love for the Church (2)

The strengths of the church are not earthly things.  If we are caught up in the outward, earthly characteristics of the church, then most of the time we will find the church difficult to love; we will not want much to do with her.  But we are called to observe the spiritual strengths of the church: her towers, bulwarks, and palaces as Psalm 48:12-13 calls them.  Click here to read Rev. Rodney Kleyn's explanation of all the wonderful strengths of the church and of our necessary calling in regards to them.

Commitment to the Local Church

Hebrews was written to Jewish converts who had a tendency to return to their old traditions and needed to be reminded that there was a supremacy of Jesus to the Old Testament types and shadows.
