THE CHURCH AND ITS MINISTRY PART 3
God’s “Gathered Together” and “Called Out”
4 New Testament Images that define and describe the Church
- THE BODY OF CHRIST
- 2. CORNERSTONE AND FOUNDATION
- GROOM WITH BRIDE
- SHARING-SACRAMENT IN BODY AND BLOOD
“Responding to God’s call, the people are called away or out from their previous ultimate loyalties and connections, and God forms them into a people gathered to worship him alone.”
Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.” Passing alongside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you become fishers of men.” And immediately they left their nets and followed him.
