Make no mistake about it. The church was no "Plan B" effort after the failure of the Law of Moses to save people from their sins. Before the foundations of the earth, God had an exact and detailed plan for His church. God's plan was a mystery to the prophets and patriarchs, but clues and hints and shadows whispered that a better way was coming. With the establishment of the church on the day of Pentecost, the good news of God spread throughout the hollow efforts of the Jews and on to the pagan and corrupt lives of the Gentiles. Through His Son, Jesus, God created a unity and boldness among believing men and women that could draw meaning from the madness and spark sacrificial love in the self-centered. Paul's letter to the Ephesian church tells us that when the church is living out its divine destiny, it is all "to the praise of His glory." John W. Smith has more than fifty years experience as a preacher, teacher, and lectureship speaker. He has sold more than 1.4 million copies of his books, including: My Mother Player the Piano, My Mother's Favorite Song, and the Restoration Church series. His speaking and writing reveal an unusual insight into life and God's Word. John is still in demand as a speaker for lectureships, banquets, rallies, and motivational events.
