The Glory of the Church

Passage: Psalm 87:1-7
Service Type:

A building is not the church; the church of Jesus Christ is a people: all those who are in relationship with God.

This psalm was written to show the church who she is, and therefore how she is to worship.

The church is glorious because she is the foundation of God’s kingdom, the mother of God’s elect, and the nurturer of God’s children.

This is the glory and beauty of God’s church - of us. We are to “proclaim the praises of Jehovah,” as we embrace this truth by faith. We are to be devoted to the church with our time, our talent and our treasure, because she is the bride of Christ.
