Church

The Beloved of God – Poem by Susanne Schuberth

There is a church that is unseen
It has no building, pew or screen
To display things of churchly life
Instead, this church is called His wife
 
You join that church by entering
Into Christ through surrendering
All that you have and what you are
To Jesus who’s the Morning Star
 
He’ll strip your self off from the heart
And nakedness will be the start
Of fellowship you didn’t know
As long as you sat in a row
 
With other human bodies there
In buildings where the preachers care
About the sermon for the crowd
Which beefs up faith and leaves no doubt
 
This new Church, she has come to us
In secret, without a big fuss
On Pentecost, that long ago
Now she is here, at hand, aglow
 
With Spirit’s fire, love, and more
For everyone who to the core
Was pierced with arrows of His love
Sent by His angels from above
 
Assembling there is different – yes
And fellowship so special – guess
You meet there those beloved ones
Who live elsewhere on earth, His sons
 
His daughters, all His children come
Together by His Spirit’s drum
Which calls them every day and night
To fellowship sheer out of sight  
 
They worship God with thankfulness
In heart and mind and pray He’ll bless
All those who do not join them yet
With life eternal where regret
 
Is over as is doubt and fear
When you see God and Jesus near
With all your brothers, sisters there
Who His love in God’s Kingdom share

  2. I am praying in this late hour more and more of His hungry ones press into the reality that the building and “pastor” are not where our identity and loyalties are to lie. We are in Him and are to look to Him alone.. together.

    I loved this thank you

    humbly
