 Church and Fellowship - A.W. Tozer

Church and Fellowship

"Til I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine."
--1 Timothy 4:13


In an effort to get the work of the Lord done we often lose contact with the Lord of the work and quite literally wear our people out as well. I have heard more than one pastor boast that his church was a "live" one, pointing to the printed calendar as a proof -- something on every night and several meetings during the day.... A great many of these time-consuming activities are useless and others plain ridiculous.

"But," say the eager beavers who run the religious squirrel cages, "they provide fellowship and they hold our people together."

To this I reply that what they provide is not fellowship at all, and if that is the best thing the church has to offer to hold the people together it is not a Christian church in the New Testament meaning of that word. The center of attraction in a true church is the Lord Jesus Christ....

If the many activities engaged in by the average church led to the salvation of sinners or the perfecting of believers they would justify themselves easily and triumphantly; but they do not. ...many, perhaps most, of the activities engaged in by the average church do not contribute in any way to the accomplishing of the true work of Christ on earth....

From That Incredible Christian, 136-137.
