We are His house!

We are His house!
But Christ is faithful as a son over God’s house. And we are his house, if we hold on to our courage and the hope of which we boast.

Dear All,

What an amazing last couple of weeks in seeing a glimpse of God’s glory in the life our church here in Zug!  God moved so fast in providing a new larger meeting place for LIFT that some found us on Ibelweg 18 this past Sunday morning only after going to Vorstadt first.  Even with technology, we couldn’t keep up with God.  But, once we all were together, it was simply worship of our God who is faithful and who blesses in His perfect timing!!!

I was encouraged to come across these verses in Hebrews today regarding us, God’s people as “the house”, and notice it’s not a reference to a building. (more text below) Yes, I praise God that we have this new building on Ibelweg to rent and can even use it the other 6 days of the week for His purposes, but I praise God that LIFT has never been about a building but about people, God’s people!  As I shared in Sunday’s message (and our singing) of Moses asking God to “Show Me Your Glory”, I believe we are truly seeing a glimpse of God in action at the moment!  What a beautiful thing to see!

I could attach another map, but thanks to the wonderful servant’s heart of Dave Haefliger (and Jami alongside him), LIFT now has a new updated website with all the information on how to find us, plus much, much more!  www.liveitandgiveit.com  Thank you, Dave, for a job incredibly well done! (And all who know Dave well, know that this humble man simply serves to serve the Lord and doesn’t look for the spotlight, so I’m sure I’ll hear from him later about exposing his great work!)  Thank you, Jesus for providing this website tool to LIFT as You are always faithful beyond our expectations.

In His grip and grace,

Corey

Hebrews 3:1-6
Therefore, holy brothers, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess. He was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses was faithful in all God’s house. Jesus has been found worthy of greater honor than Moses, just as the builder of a house has greater honor than the house itself. For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything. Moses was faithful as a servant in all God’s house, testifying to what would be said in the future. 

    But Christ is faithful as a son over God’s house. And we are his house, if we hold on to our courage and the hope of which we boast.
