Matthew 6:33

From the Confessions: Treatise on the Power and Primacy of the Pope 

Since these enormous errors obscure faith and the kingdom of Christ, they must not be disregarded for any reason. The outcome of these errors shows that they have been great pestilences to the Church.

Pulling It Together

The Bible calls us to faith in Christ, to seek his kingdom and righteousness above all things. Anyone who puts himself over Christ or even beside him must be avoided. Salvation is missed if we follow another, for that is to have faith in that other when faith in Christ is required. Only his righteousness will do, that saving righteousness which is a gracious gift from God, only received by faith—not by doing things or following anyone but Christ alone.

Prayer: Help me, God, to live from faith to faith in Christ my Lord. Amen.

The kind of church we see in the New Testament is different from what most modern people imagine when they think of “going to church.” Experiencing Life Together is a 15-week house-church curriculum designed for pastors, lay leaders, and churches interested in getting a taste for what church in the home is really like. Whether referred to as a house-church, organic church, alternative church, or cell church, this material applies well to any group that wants to experience Christian worship in the context of a small group meeting within the homes of the participants.
