Mutually Yours - It Does A Body Good


"Down in the human heart, Crushed by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore;
Touched by a loving hand, Wakened by kindness, Chords that were broken will vibrate once more.
"

From "Rescue The Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby 1869

The body of Christ grows and does what God intended it to do when the members of that body grow together. Each one is to help the other to mature and develop in the work. We just cannot afford to be caviler about this. Christianity is not something that is done solo, with no concern for anyone but self... It is imperative that we take an active part in the spiritual progress of those we are connected to in the body. This was true in the first century church and is still true today. I guess we live in a sort of individualist type of culture that causes folks to pay less attention to other's need for encouragement than they should. I think we do ourselves an injustice when we underestimate how much influence we actually can have on one another... For better or for worse, we are constantly having an impact on our brethren whether we choose to realize it or not. Our example most likely does far more than we think to either encourage or discourage those around us. Lets be sure that we live our lives in such a way in which that it leads our fellow Christians on the upward path of growth. Beyond example, we can involve ourselves in teaching, admonishing and prayer on behalf of our brethren. It will do the body good...

Have a great day... T G I F Today God Is First... Love mark Phil.4:11
