The Christ of the Empty Church

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

Posted: April 18, 2020

The Body of Christ doesn't need a biuilding…

The Christ of the empty tomb
is not put off by empty churches.
After all, He has a history of
surprising His followers
who are sheltering in place
out of fear
or out of necessity.

He's been known to meet-up
with those who are simply
out for a walk
near their home.

Wasn't it Jesus who said,
"Where two or three
are gathered in my name,
there am I in the midst of them?"

This Easter season
I'm especially grateful
the Church is not a building
that can be locked up
or burned down.

It is a fellowship of believers
who cannot be denied
the presence of the living Lord.
The Church is virtually
a family of faith.
