The “Church Age,” is the current time in world history where God is calling His special people out of the world and into the church, through faith in Jesus. Now, is the time to get it right with the Lord. In the church age you are saved by grace! You do not have to try to earn your way into heaven. As a matter of fact, you cannot but salvation is received as a gift. When you become a true believer and invite Jesus into your heart, you become God’s child. You are adopted into His heavenly family. This happens because of your confidence and faith that Jesus died on the cross for your sins. That is what the church age is all about. Now is the time to get right with God and that is how. We are not always going to be in the Church Age, where salvation comes so easily. Do you hear Him calling you? Come to Jesus.
That is how God is primarily doing His work in the world today. God is primarily doing His work through the preaching of the gospel and through the ministries of the church. The church is precious to God. It is His pearl. God does not primarily work through nations, government, social entities, and the systems of non-believers. God works predominantly in the world through the ministries of the church. He speaks to the world through the ministries of the church. He ministers to the world through the church. God warns Christians about what is going to happen to the world at the end, and about the salvation of the righteous. Do not follow the systems of the world, thinking you are following God. God mainly does His work through His children. This is the church age!
Questions: Have you received Jesus into your heart? How has the enemy led many to believe that the church is not important? In what ways do you see Christians today following the world’s system of justice, believing that they are following God?
Prayer: Our Heavenly Father, thank you for adopting us into your family. We did not earn our favor with you, but you chose to save us anyway. You truly love us. Lord, you want to minister to the world through us, your children. Open our eyes and ears, so we can see and hear what you are doing right in front of us. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
