Love your messy church

Lately I’ve realised that one of the most important doctrines to grasp is sin. When we don’t have a full doctrine of Sin we:

Aren’t as in awe of the gospel as we should be

-Aren’t prepared for our internal battle with temptation

-Get disappointed with other (Saved by Grace) Christians who fail us

-Get frustrated with the local church that is messy

Dan Kimball made a short video about how this disappointment with a messy church plays out. However, I believe that a church will always be messy as it is full of people getting saved and being transformed by GRACE.

If you want to think more about your view of the local church, I can heartily recommend a short book by Joshua Harris called ‘Stop dating the church’.
