Jesus knows the Church, and Jesus loves the Church. What does it look like for Jesus to know and love the Church, and what does that mean for us?
"Much anger towards the church and most disappointments in the church are because of failed expectations. We expect a disciplined army of committed men and women who courageously lay siege to the worldly powers; instead we find some people who are more concerned with getting rid of the crabgrass in their lawns...There must be no idealization of the church...At such times it is more important to examine and change our expectations than to change the church..." -Eugene Peterson
