With this chapter we begin the second part of the book, where we can train our eyes tor recognize the church that Jesus is building in the world and how it differs from the one humanity is building. The two can co-exist in the same environment, but the human versions are always preoccupied with corporate realities–doctrines, programs, budgets, policies, and order.
The church Jesus is building has its focus on him and learning to follow him. It prizes love as a way of living, healthy relationships with other believers and the world, and functions is a functional family rather than a corporation.
Seeing the church as a family will help you tune into that reality and then you’ll live in a way that allows you to see and connect with her.
