You Are a Representative of Christ on Earth
This devotional was written by Jim Burns
You are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. — 1 Corinthians 12:27
God created the world
He appeared on this earth in the form of Jesus
He was beautiful
We mocked Him and killed Him
He rose from the dead
He is alive and eternal
He needs a new body on this earth
You have been chosen!
You are an important part of the body of Christ. You are needed to fulfill His work on earth. Your job is to live as He lived and love as He loved. One other thing—He gives you His Spirit to get you through the day.
