I Am A Church Member-A Gift Of Love To Be Treasured-Part 1

May 21, 2015

 

Acts 17:28(a)“for in Him we live and move and have our being,”

Being a member of the body of Christ is being a member of the local church. When you are in the local church you are serving because this is where you are. You cannot serve all over the world except by praying. You and I have to be physically somewhere, and we need to look about and find where we are to serve by the power of the Holy Spirit within us. God has given each of us a spiritual gift. He has equipped us and enabled us to serve somewhere within our local church. When we serve, allowing God to use the gifts He has given us, everyone in the body of Christ benefits, and we grow spiritually as a result. We need to see others and see ourselves the right way as we live life moving and having our being in Christ Jesus in the local body of Christ.
