A person like this almost always has to leave the church behind to do his thing, because that’s the only way he can get away with it without being rebuked, challenged, and corrected. One reason for the church is so that we do not live indepen dently and rebel against spiritual authority or leadership in our lives. We need the counsel and guidance of the Word of God as it is expounded and applied in the church. Now let me hasten to add that as a senior pastor, I am also a man under authority. The only authority I have is the authority of God’s Word.
Paul could say, “I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ” (Romans 1:16). The Bible says Jesus is not ashamed to call us His brothers (Hebrews 2:11). How then can we be ashamed to identify with Him in the church, to stand with the people of God? Remember, we are going to be in heaven forever with Jesus and every blood-bought member of the true church. I don’t want heaven to be ashamed of me because I was ashamed or afraid to reveal my true identity as Jesus’ disciple. Instead of shrinking, we are called to identify with Christ in the shame and reproach of the cross (Hebrews 13:13).
The people of God are not freefloating individuals. We are knitted together as one body in the church the way our bodies are knitted together. This modern emphasis on a personal relationship with Christ at the expense of connectedness to the church is totally contrary to the teaching and example of Christ. I encourage you to jot down the seven reasons I am about to give you and put them in your Bible so you can remind yourself reg ularly why you, as the spiritual leader in your home, should make the church a priority for you and your family.
