Growing as part of the body of Christ

October 11, 2010

For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.

Romans 12:4-5

Do you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ?

That question so often becomes the litmus test of what it means to be a Christian today. Everywhere you turn you hear Christians talk about things like "my personal faith" and "Jesus is my personal Lord and Savior."

Now don't get me wrong, I absolutely believe that placing your faith in Jesus Christ is a personal decision that only you can make. But how often do you see Christians emphasize the personal nature of our faith only to forget the corporate nature?

The word corporate comes from the Latin word corpus, which means "body"—and that's exactly what I'm talking about! You and I are part of the body of Christ and not one of us can live the Christian life alone.

Unfortunately, much of the Western world has adopted a "Lone Ranger" mentality when it comes to faith. But God never meant it to be this way!

Even before the fall of man, God knew that it was "not good that the man should be alone" (Genesis 2:18). And from eternity past, God existed in three persons—Father, Son, and Spirit—because he knew that community was so important.

So get away from the "Lone Ranger" mentality and live in community. Only then will you begin to grasp what God can do when the many members of the body act as one!

Straight Up

Dear Friend,

I sincerely hope you will request my 10-message series called Straight Up, where I tackle 10 tough questions we all face. Like "When Does Life Begin?" and "Can Love Last a Lifetime?", "Can You Trust the Bible?", and "Are All Religions the Same?"

After listening, you'll be more equipped to live a confident life, knowing the truth and trusting the promises of Christ!
