The Importance of the Body

The New Testament has two big illustrations that it uses for the church.  One of them is the sheep and the shepherd.  The other is the body or bride of Christ.

The Assembly of the Body

The first thing to realize about the body is that God the Father is the one that put it together1.  He put them in the body as He saw fit for His purposes.

Why is this radical?  Because we tend to think that we chose a specific church, and we also tend to look at a church as to what I can get out of it, rather than how God can use me in it.

  1. 1 Corinthians 12:18 []
