In the Casting Crowns song, If We Are The Body (great song by the way), they ask the questions:
If we are the body,
Why aren’t His arms reaching?
Why aren’t His hands healing?
Why aren’t His words teaching?
Why aren’t His feet going?
Why is His love not showing them there is a way?
(YES, I’m singing this VERY LOUD as I write.)
I love the song, and the message behind it. However, I have to say that I’m finding just the opposite to be true as our church is making plans to help those affected by the tornadoes in Alabama. In just one day, I’ve gotten responses from several church leaders & Christian businesses that are going to partner with us, and be the hands & feet of Jesus.
It’s so cool to see The Body of Christ, be The Body of Christ!
Let us know if you are interested in being a part of the team. We would love to have you!
Together, we will show them HIS love, and that there is a way.
1 Corinthians 12:27 The Message Bible
You are Christ’s body-that’s who you are! You must never forget this. Only as you accept your part of that body does your “part” mean anything.
