You Are a Representative of Christ on Earth
This devotional was written by Jim Burns

You are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. — 1 Corinthians 12:27

God created the world

He appeared on this earth in the form of Jesus

He was beautiful

We mocked Him and killed Him

He rose from the dead

He is alive and eternal

He needs a new body on this earth

You have been chosen!

You are an important part of the body of Christ. You are needed to fulfill His work on earth. Your job is to live as He lived and love as He loved. One other thing—He gives you His Spirit to get you through the day.

GOING DEEPER:

1. What is the meaning of the phrase, "you are the body of Christ" from 1 Corinthians 12:27?

2. Did you know you are the only Jesus somebody knows? Today love someone as Jesus would love them.
