The Body of Christ

"For the body is not one member, but many" 1 Cor 12:14

As my Sunday School class has been studying through the Book of Acts, we have seen the marvelous way God is building His Church. This Church, the Body of Christ, is made up of all people, Jews and Gentiles alike, as they believe that Jesus Christ truly is the Son of God, that He died for their sin and that He rose again. GLORY!!!

This same Church is being added to daily, as people from all walks of life, from all parts of the world, are believing the same Gospel message the first members of the Church believed. (I have typed myself into the Glory Zone again)

Every believer is a member of Christ's body and every member is just as important to the body as the other members. Some are heads, hands and feet but some are livers, kidneys and lungs!!! All are necessary for the Body to be healthy and to function as Christ intended.

Friends, you may feel unnecessary today but you are just as important to the Body of Christ as Mother Teresa or Billy Graham. Do I hear a Hallelujah?

"Father, I rejoice when I think about your perfect plan for Your Church, the Bride of Christ. I pray you will encourage someone with this message today. In Jesus Name, I pray." Amen

My Princess...I want you to be content

"I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength." Phillipians 4: 12-13

You were given My peace when you let Me into your life. It is possible, My Princess, to enjoy your life with a peaceful mind and a contented heart. You have so much to look forward to when you're settled in your heavenly home with Me. But for now you must remember that nothing you buy or collect will calm your spirit or soothe your soul like I can. You came into this world with nothing, and that is how you will leave it. Let Me do more than give you the good gifts this life has to offer. I will give you a place of peace, decorated with delight and filled with memories that will be more cherished than anything this world has to offer. So let Me be your treasure, and I will give you a rich life that will become more beautiful than anything money can buy.


Your King and your Contentment
