Ordinary Means

Preferring the para-church over the local church is much like the arrogance of Naaman: insisting that the waters of his homeland were superior to that of the Jordan. It is not ours to decide where God’s blessing will preside; we ought not to be wiser than God.

Go to your local church for the dispensing of God’s sanctioned means of grace: there you will receive the water of the Word (John 4 :13-14 & Ephesians 5:26); there you will be cleansed by the blood of Christ (1 John 1:7) and there you may drink of the vine of the kingdom (Matthew 26:29).
