Recently I heard someone refer to the church building as the "house of God," as if somehow God lived there. But we must never think of a church building as the house of God. There are no more holy places now that Jesus has come. He has changed all that. True worship, he taught, is now dependent on a person and not a place. The upshot is that if we want to meet with God and worship him, we don't have to travel to any special place, be it Gerizim, or Jerusalem, of a church building.
Worship cannot be contained to a building on Sunday! I so wish the church could get this right!
