Notes on the church Jesus builds

In that day, declares the Lord,
I will assemble the lame
and gather those who have been driven away
and those whom I have afflicted.

"On that great day," God says,
"I will round up all the hurt and homeless,
everyone I have bruised or banished.

Micah 4:6

Bringing these ones in to church: those with disabilities, people who have been rejected, and all hurt by God. The Lord does the assembling, the gathering, the rounding up. The true church is a group built by Christ. He uses people to gather people, but it’s the Lord who is behind the idea of it and who is the one we gather around.
