Fear of God Devotional: What Should The Church Be Doing



We need to come back to ask the question in terms of the tasks of the church. What does God say the church should be doing and refuse to make the church the engine of a thousand fine things that are not the task of the church. We need to come back and say what did God say the church should do and worship. What did God say the church should do we need better come back and make those things central. And anything else we do is simply the circumstantial applications of those things to the worship of the church. We need to come back to the government of the church and ask what are the Biblical offices for the church. How is the church biblically to be organized. What is the biblical relationship between the congregation and the elders? And we need to ask also what is the doctrine of the church and insist that that doctrine is not something that is merely an idea we have that seems to be generally consistent with the word of God that the doctrine of the church must be scripture alone. That is to say, it must be explicitly to taught the scripture or by good and necessary inference deduced from it.
