When speaking about organization in this Practicum we are looking at more of the process or act of organizing as opposed to a structured entity. In other words, we want to focus on the verb more than the noun. The Body of Christ must be viewed as a living organism, not a bureaucratic structure or organization. . . .
When we view love for God and people as our primary purpose, based on what Jesus identified as the Greatest Commandments, love even governs organization within the Church. It’s the cause, or reason, we provide organization, as well as the effect, or outcome. . . .
Love has been God’s primary purpose for His people since the beginning (Deut. 6:5; Matt. 22:36-40) but we haven’t reached the heights and depths of God’s love. We can’t begin to comprehend how wide it stretches and how long it is. . . .
