“Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.”
The Heavenly Father does not want the followers of His Son Jesus to be loners. He designed that we shall function as a church that is a group of believers. Each with his or her God gifted talents and with a specific and different calling but with two main aims at the core.
1. To give Glory to God.
2. To edify one another.
Therefore love for God and for one another should be the foundations and motives underlying all initiatives within the church. It is not to build ones little kingdom but to be an active contributor to the Universal Body of Christ which is the Universal Church with Christ as HEAD.
Once a group of believers lay down their lives for Christ and one another, than the Holy Spirit can truly move in their midst and through such a spirit filled church the manifestation of God’s love and power is present and should one be blessed to be part of such a church, he or she can really start touching heaven from this world.
We christians have an active role in the body of Christ no one is less important than another and therefore let us lay our lives so that Christ will take the glory and present HIm a bride which is ready to welcome the return of Her Groom.
