This is a wonderful post from A God-Man in Christ on seeing the Body of Christ and living in the Body of Christ. This is super timely for me because at present, I am stuck in Nashville without the practical fellowship I am usually surrounded by at home with Christians on Campus.
You can view the full post here, but here’s a little intro:
If we see the Body of Christ we will realize that we need deliverance not only from our sinful and natural life, but also from our individualistic life. For us to know the Body life, we need to deny our self, because our self is the greatest problem and the greatest enemy of the Body.
Check with your experience – whenever you are in the self, you don’t want to be with the saints, and there’s no building up!
Just as the Father is versus the world (1 John 2:15), the Spirit is versus the flesh (Gal. 5:17), the Lord Jesus is versus the devil (1 John 3:8), so also the Body of Christ is versus the individual, versus the self. Lord, grant us a vision of the self and a vision of the Body!
