And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way. (Ephesians 1:22-23)
To be the lips that proclaim the Good News of salvation… the feet that go where the needy are… the ears that listen to cries of distress and oppression… the hands that are open to give and to help… and the arms that embrace the different and welcome the undesirable.
Those are our roles. Not just as part of the Jesus Is Lord Church Worldwide, but more so, as part of THE Church, the body of believers. We who were once sinners, but now forgiven. We who were once lost, but now saved. We who were once outside the fold, but now taken in graciously and mercifully.
The question now is: How are we faring as members of God’s Body? May those outside the Body indeed see that we are God’s lips, feet, ears, hands, and arms.
