God is the Writer of His Story. God ‘writes’ about His Son … not just Jesus who is the Christ but also His Body – that is us. Can you imagine that God the Holy One has chosen you to play a part in His Story? What part has He given you? Are you playing your role well?
Each one of us has a specific role to play. Isn’t it amazing? We are so honored to be in ‘His Cast’!
His ‘Body’ is part of Him – how awesome! His ‘Body’ belongs to Him! An injury can cause pain to a person. A small piercing in the heart can cause great pain. The rest of the body suffers.
Imagine some real situations: a man falls and hits his brain; a man is infected by disease and his body fights against it - his body either recovers or deteriorates.
Eternal life on earth I cannot perceive - I cannot imagine how terrible it would be if man continues to live in this fallen world eternally! God in His grace extended mercy.
When a person dies, he is no longer affected by the woes of the fallen world. He goes to another place – his spirit and soul (as one) departs from the fallen world. He leaves his body behind.
Believers of Jesus Christ
We go to Jesus, our Lord and Savior because we belong to Him. We are His Body. We go Home to the Father.
Who is Jesus Christ?
Everything that God does in this secret shaping of the Servant has one end in view: to make the Servant what God’s people as a whole are intended to be – the showcase of God’s glory.
Dear Father God
Your love is amazing! No word can describe the fullness of Your love for us.
Thank You for the Cross. It looks like tragedy – death of an innocent man - but it shows me clearly – Your Mercy. Thank You LORD!
May we submit to Your secret shaping as the body of Christ, the body of the Servant King.
May we showcase Your GLORY!
In Jesus’ wonderful and glorious name I pray.
