Grow Together

What does it mean to be a Christian? What does it mean to be in Christ? Paul answers those questions in 1 Corinthians 12:12-19.NIV

12 Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. 13 For we were all baptized by[c] one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. 14 Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many.

15 Now if the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. 16 And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? 18 But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. 19 If they were all one part, where would the body be? 20 As it is, there are many parts, but one body.

According to Paul there is no such thing as a “solitary Christian.” To even imagine such a thing would be as silly as imagining an autonomous freestanding solitary eyeball. We are Christians together or we are not Christians at all. We find our individual identities only within our shared experiences together.

Get In The Game!

A few days ago I passed a high school and I thought back to my own experience growing up in Australia. I played soccer for Centenary Heights High School in Toowoomba, Queensland. Just in case you are wondering about my athletic prowess I should explain that in Australia at that time the best athletes went out for rugby; the second tier played hockey; and then there was soccer. Our team did actually have a few first rate athletes… but, they also had me.

The position I played was “inside left.” I can see the puzzled looks on the faces of you soccer aficionados, “What on earth is an ‘inside left?’ There is no such position as an ‘inside left.’” You are right. There isn’t. … Ah, but there was such a position back then. Today the whole strategy has changed. The names of the positions have changed. And not just the names… the positions themselves have changed. The game has evolved.

Disciples

16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw Him, they worshiped him; but some doubted.18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:16-20.

So, with these words Jesus commissioned His disciples. With these words He gave us our marching orders. We must go out and “bring disciples to Jesus.”

The Answer Is Yes

“There Is More!” That is our theme for 2019. More of what? More of God. More than you have experienced. More of His presence. We believe, not merely that God is. We believe that He is with us, in us and for us.

There is power in this… His power. Listen to Paul in 2 Corinthians 1:18-22.

There Is More…There Is Power

Do you long for “more?” You will not find it by acquiring stuff. You will not satisfy it by seeking self fulfillment. You will not even find it in greater understanding.
