Today marks the first day back at the Fairview Baptist Church building. It was such a blessing to have members of the community to join us as we share our appreciation to those who came together after the tornado to clean up. Some would say it was such a tragedy, but as we learned over the past six months, the building is not the church. The church is the body of saved, born again, baptized believers. Although our time in the warehouse was special, we are grateful to be back in our auditorium. The same Spirit that was flowing through the warehouse, is the same Spirit surrounding us in our church building. God has been wonderful to Fairview Baptist Church and we are so grateful God knew He could let a tornado damage our buildings, but not His church!
There is so much majesty in Christ. All is His and He is preeminent of all that is. Christ does His work and we are alleviated by God from our sins. Christ changes us. One day He will present us perfect to God. So lets not just represent Christ, but always let others see Christ in us.
"And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence." Col 1:18
