Nº 23 · September - October 2003
The church today, has at least two great problems, of which two great necessities are derived. Lance Lambert identifies one of these when saying: "The tragedy of the church today is that there are many babies and children, but few mature sons." The necessity of maturity arises here. The second is identified by Christian Chen when comparing the church at the present time with the situation of the Jews after the fall of Jerusalem: their dispersion.
is the summary: A church made up of immature and divided children. The
church is divided into a multitude of unconnected fragments. A sad panorama?
Yes, evidently; but not a hopeless one because although this is its current
state, it won't be its end; "God shall help her at the dawn of the
morning." And that morning is arriving.
We don't doubt that the Lord will achieve His final purpose: to have a mature and united church; a glorious church, without stain and without blemish. Today, He is washing is and making the church beautiful. He is gathering it together. We are filled with hope when contemplating the work that God is carrying out today.
May the Lord use the messages in this magazine to contribute, albeit minimally, to that wonderful purpose.
