Pastor Art Azurdia preaching "The Personal Possession Of Jesus Christ", part two of the series Loving What God Loves.
The church bears the distinct dignity of being the possession of Jesus Christ. The devaluing of the church occurs the moment you delink her from Jesus Christ, because she is always His. We must remember that the value of an object increases in direct proportion to the significance of the person to whom it belongs.
Jesus makes two staggering commitments in this text. He promises to build his church and that the gates of Hades will not overcome it. This is our confidence, Jesus is the architect of the church, the church is his personal possession whose building is presently in process.
