May 28th 2016 – The Body of Christ

images (27)

“I am not overstating it when I say that the man who caused all the trouble hurt all of you more than he hurt me.” (2 Corinthians 2:5)

When you are a Christian, and you are part of a church Body of Christ. Its a family. In fact, sometimes it can be an even deeper relationship than those found in a family. As believers, we weep together over heartaches, rejoice together in victories and share our lives with each other. This is not odd; this is the way God intended it to be.

(Romans 12:5) “so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other.”

If I was to hurt myself and you began to feel the pain, we would know there was a deep connection between us. In the church, we all are supposed to be connected. That is why Jesus described it as the church body. When something good happens to you, I will be there to rejoice with you. Unfortunately, there are Christians who would rather pout over the blessing of another believer than to experience the joy of celebration with them. That person is missing out on one of the many joys of the church. Today, look for ways to connect with other believers. If they are struggling, then be there with them. If they are excited, then cheer them on as they seek Christ. Let’s unite under the name of Christ and find fresh unity among all believers.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for Your church and the fellowship of believers. Help us all to remain united and not to allow petty issues to cause division. Give me a heart that rejoices with others and is willing to mourn with them as well. When part of the body is hurt, help us have compassion and feel their pain. When part of the body is attacked, may we all stand with them.” In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    “There is ONE Body and ONE SPIRIT, just as you were called in ONE HOPE of your calling; ONE LORD, ONE FAITH, ONE BAPTISM; ONE GOD and FATHER, who is above All, through All, and in US ALL.” (Ephesians 4:4,5,6)
    ” May you, Holy Father, bless the ONENESS of Us in the LOVE of Christ Jesus, our LORD and SAVIOR. Amen.”
