“To the church of God that is in Corinth” (1 Cor. 1:2). “To all those in Rome who are loved by God and called to be saints” (Romans 1:7). “To the saints who are in Ephesus” (Ephesians 1:1). To the saints and faithful brothers in Christ at Colossae” (Colossians 1:2). When Paul wrote many of his letters he was addressing the Church of the city. All the exhortations and commands to love one another, forgive one another, honor one another were directed to all the believers of the city and not to just small local expressions of the body of Christ. Today we are praying that we can recapture our identity as the Church of our city.
