Is the Church Invisible?

Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them, Matthew 18:19-20 (KJV). We want to be specific about those who are gathered together, they are believers filled with the Holy Spirit, and praying God’s will and not their own personal wants and desires.
Look around and you will witness groups and organizations from every part of the country speaking out, holding rallies, and marching in mass numbers demanding action and change. Is the church invisible, hiding behind the walls of the physical location of the church building. The church is in us, 1John 4:4,13 (KJV), Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit. With that being said, come forth and speak with all boldness for the things of Christ and share the gospel of Jesus Christ. Your personal testimony could be the difference between another soul being saved or lost. Serving Christ Without Compromise can be our chant and should be our lifestyle.
The church is the people, the body of believers living out the gospel. If you want to know the responsibilities of Christians in society, read Titus. Titus was the overseer of the churches of Crete and his teachings came from Paul. Paul gave sound instructions and explained the responsibilities of the pastors, elders, church leaders and Christians in their daily lives. If you want to know what the “church” leaders should rise up to in their responsibilities read 1Tim 3:1-13 (KJV). We can’t be silent soldiers or worried warriors for the kingdom. We cannot be timid in a sinful world. We must ask God to order our steps. We must believe our God can do what he said he will do. We must believe he answers prayers. We must believe in the God that delivered Israel out of Egypt and we must believe his word will not come back void.
Do the people of God need picket signs or poster boards? I think we can make ourselves more visible with a pure heart seeking God. So, when we talk about the goodness of the Lord, they will hear us and where two or three are gathered together God is in the midst, well of course I have a bigger vision where 20,000 or more are gathered together and being doers of His word, they will see us…the church, that would be me and you. There will be no doubt the church is not invisible.
