Visiting Notre Dame and Sainte-Chapelle today it really struck me how much time, energy, passion, and resources were used to build these physical structures to be used to worship and glorify God – 800+ years ago.
Today we understand the “church” is not the building we worship in, but Christ was born, died, and rose again so that He would reside and abide IN US. WE are the church. I wonder if we focused our time, energy, passion, and resources to this same extent to build this version of the ‘church’ – along with the power of the Holy Spirit — what our world would look like today. Jesus – use me to build your Kingdom now.
