God lives by His Spirit in the midst of His church, and His people become His dwelling place. God adds us like living stones to the building (1 Peter 2:4-6). Lifting Christ before the people, calling them to worship, and inviting them to enthrone Chirst become our goals.
Even in the midst of corruption, Christ made it His practice to go to church because He could still meet God in His temple. We should not exclude ourselves from church because unholy people go there. People don't make the church holy; the Lord's presence makes it holy. Whether the preacher preaches well or the singers sing on key, God is still God - present with His people, the church, as they assemble each Sabbath.
