Letters to the Church Chapter 3


In chapter 3 of his book, Letters to the Church, Francis Chan discussed

the challenge of making God the central focus of church services in our

consumer mentality culture. The question was raised, “Do our desires

overpower God’s simple and perfect design for His church?” We seek to be

appealing and offer the next new thing, but is this a never-ending game? The

staff agrees that we must differentiate between what we want and what God

commands. God has shown the plan for the church in His Word, and we must

follow this design.

Following the example of the early church in the Bible, we are to have

fellowship and communion with believers (Acts 2:42-47), be devoted to

prayer with excitement (Acts 4:31), to the public reading of scripture, to

preaching and to teaching (I Timothy 4:13). God desires for His children to

fully experience Him through the church. He has given us a blueprint to

follow. We should follow Him with excitement and anticipation!
