Acts 9:4

Acts 9:4…”Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?” How was Saul persecuting Jesus? Wasn’t he simply persecuting His followers? This statement by our Lord reveals His view of His church. Jesus identifies so closely with His church that He refers to it as Himself! Christian, do you identify yourself with those whom your Savior identifies Himself? Does your heart share the passions of His heart? We greatly limit our joy in this life when we neglect loving those in our church. We were made for community, and it is God’s plan for bringing Himself glory. Committing to a local church is the primary way we obey all the “one anothers” of the New Testament.
