Churchless groups of believers either suppress those who have beliefs and ideas that are different from theirs (Just like traditional churches) or they grow in numbers and diversity until a building and structure is absolutely needed to survive ( Just like traditional churches). In other words, those who leave the church in order to be the church end up needing a church.

Purge is an interesting word. In one sense, it’s about getting rid of things that are undesirable. But in another sense, it’s about purifying things that are dirty. Leaving the church rids us of undesirable people. Infiltrating the church purifies dirty people.

This is the third in a series exploring why we should live intentionally in the body of Christ. Hint: It's not about us; it's about other people. Feel free to read Part 1 and Part 2 before diving into this post.

Infiltrating—or, being the change in church—teaches you how to love the unlovely. It drives you to not only study God’s Word, but to live out his commands. It helps you and other imbalanced believers gravitate toward Christlikeness. It shows you the great price Christ suffered for the sake of wandering souls. Most importantly, infiltrating ignites true Christian love into a flame not even a distracted world can ignore.

No matter where we gather as the people of God, we are to think about how we can, in all encouragement, help our brothers and sisters embrace the radical call of following Jesus. And not just once in a while, but “all the more” as his return draws nearer. This is infiltration.

If you love someone who loves you, what profit is that? Anyone can do that, Jesus says. But if you love the messy bride of Christ—people in church—that's supernatural. That speaks. And we have to have faith that speaks.

Your life is not your own. Your life is a product of those who’ve poured into you career-wise, education-wise, spiritually-wise. They all helped you become who you are in Christ today. They invested in you. To decide to live intentionally not only outside of your church but inside of your church as well … is to pay the love forward.

Everyone in your church is somewhere in their relationship with Jesus, knowledge of Jesus, and how they're obeying Jesus and following Jesus. And here’s the thing: We need to be a part of their growth. We need to teach each other to be more like Jesus. Not by giving others our convictions, but by crying out to God, "Lord, use me in the growth of others. Help me be intentional.”

Right now, people are saying that they can follow Jesus without joining a local church. There's a growing sense that, “Hey, I follow Jesus but I'm done with traditional church.” And I totally get where they're coming from. That said, Jesus has shown us that the body of Christ is his bride, that he loves her, and that his will for us is to love her too. This is why I wrote Called to Stay.
