A wonderful post from A God-Man in Christ.
Here’s a short teaser.
“All the genuine believers of Christ who have received Christ in their spirit are members of the Body of Christ, joined together with Christ in an organic union.
The Body of Christ is not an organization nor is it a society; it is the organism of the Triune Godproduced by the mingling of God with man. As members of the Body of Christ, we need to keep the oneness of the Body – if there’s no oneness, there’s no Body of Christ.
Also, since the Body is OF Christ and the Body IS Christ, we need to become Christ so that we may be the Body of Christ in reality. We need to have Christ wrought into our being and mingled with us so that we may be the Body of Christ.”
