NO MEMBERS, NO BODY.
But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
I trust that this bulletin finds you strong, healthy, supplied for, and wanting nothing. We have been talking about the importance of working together in oneness as family and as a body. This is the plan of God. God desires family as a unit and equates His church uniquely to a body. We are ONE body. That is, all those who are born again all over the world are His church, His body, a His Family.
A physical body is composed of parts without which it cannot be a body. So does a church.
Each of these members play a part in completing the functionality of the “whole”. The Apostle Paul by the Holy Spirit declares the importance of every member regardless of our perception of that member.
1 Corinthians 12
23And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.
This scripture is clear in that it does not matter your position, background, family affiliation, weakness…..YOU ARE IMPORTANT, and needed in the body. Now from our theme scripture:
But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
As we speak the truth of the word of God (without compromise), we grow up. This is very important because we should not remain babies all our lives. This is where most Christians are, at the babyhood. We will catch it up next week in your SPREADING THE LIGHT BULLETIN. DO NOT MISS IT. Till then, we love you.
