The early church didn't meet at religious buildings. After leaving prison, Peter turned up at Mary's house where people were #praying together (Acts 12:12) while Paul and Silas met up with the church at Lydia's house (Acts 16:40). Paul also preached in Priscilla and Aquila's house (Rom 16:5), preached in Nympha's house (Col 4:15) and met the #church gathered at Philemon's house (Phile 1:2). The word #church that we use today was translated from the Greek word #ekklesia, meaning an assembly or congregation. Over time, 'church' is now more commonly used to mean a building or a place and not to its actual meaning, a congregation of people. God doesn't call us to go to church but to be a church; to assemble as a body of believers and followers in #Christ. Church doesn't have to be the place we go to on a Sunday, church is really when we the believers and followers come together. As long as two or three are gathered together, #Jesus promises to be with us (Mat 18:20). We gather together to comfort each other (1 Thess 5:10) and to edify each other (1 Cor 14:12). God also gave all of us gifts to establish ourselves (Rom 1:11, 11:29) and to build up the body of Christ (1 Cor 12:12-31). We gather together to be unified in the faith and knowledge of Christ and to be as full of Christ or to be like Jesus as much possible (Eph 4:11-13) Now, Jesus says that when we follow Him and believe, the works that He does in our midst will bear witness to Him being real and the Son of God (John 10:25-27); that in His name, shall demons be cast out and by the laying of hands will the sick be healed (Mark 16:17-18). When Jesus is in our midst, the Lord will work with us and confirm the word through accompanying signs (Mark 16:20). In this home gathering, believers and followers experienced healing and deliverance or received an impartation. In this time of #lockdowns and restrictions, the place of the church being closed matters not. What matters is that we still continue to gather, in whatever sized-groups permitted in your country to encourage and edify each other as believers and followers in Christ to exercise our gifts and callings to build up the body of Christ.
