So we, being many, are one body in Christ and every one members one of another. Romans 12:5
Many times, the things of the spirit are so simple that many can’t take advantage of it. Many of Gods children are not aware of how important the body of Christ is to them and what it does for them.
You see, God is not a man, He neither thinks nor plans like a man. Neither is he impressed the same way a man might be. When the scriptures said,
Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. (Hebrews 10:25).
You can be sure that it is for a most vital reason. Why should a God-child go to church or even become part of a church? The church of Christ is not a denomination, a pattern or place of worship and servitude; the church is the body of Christ.
It is where every Godchild no matter how much the number is identified. This is perhaps one of the most powerful phenomena in the life today. When you gave your life to the Lord, you became a part of His body, of which He is the Head.
This is why the Godchild needs to realise that his life is no longer his to do with as he pleases, but he is now part of something and someone much larger and bigger than himself.
In Ephesians 1:22-23, we see something amazing and peculiar about the body which we are now a part of. It says,
And hath put all things under his feet, and given him to be the head over all things to the church, which is the body, the fullness of him that filleth all in all.
Christ is the Head of this body; therefore, the sufficiency of the body is Christ.
Chapter 4:15-16 shows us the implications of this.
…Which is the head, even Christ: from whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted together 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 am a joint-heir with Christ; a part of the body of Christ. I am productive in every facet of my life.
Acts 17:28, John 15:1-5
