Faithfulness

When we describe the faithfulness of a church, one of the identifiers is that it preaches and teaches God’s word faithfully and the congregation enjoys the teachings week after week.

While I would certainly agree that it would be an important identifier, I would not think it is all what a church is. A church is not only a place where one listens to the Word, but it is also a place where the teaching radiant within the church as well as outside of the church. For while it is important to learn faithful teachings, it is of no use if the teachings remain merely praises and appreciations of your lips.

Do you know that among the 206 bones an adult has, more than half of them are in your hands and your feet? Therefore also, we must not only enjoyed the teachings, but must live and do so accordingly.

James 1: 22-25:
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it—he will be blessed in what he does.
