Working together as one
“Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.” “1 Corinthians 12:27”
This is an important statement that Paul makes here. The moment we decide to give or lives to Jesus everything changes. We become members of His body. How often do we forget that truth? When we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour we die to our old ways and most importantly we die to ourselves. So, it is not about us anymore. We live not for ourselves, but for Christ.
The motivating factor in working together as one and being part of Christ’s body is that it should Christ’s love that controls us. How are we doing as members of Christ’s Body?
Being part of His body means that we can’t distance ourselves, we need to treat each other with love and respect and have an equal concern for all irrespective of who they are.
