SPREADING THE WORD WITHOUT SAYING A WORD MINISTRY
BY: CHICO AND DEBBIE JIMENEZ
ARE YOU A MEMBER OF
A COMMERCIALIZED CHURCH OR ARE YOU
A MEMBER OF THE BODY OF CHRIST???
ARE YOU A MEMBER OF A COMMERCIALIZED CHURCH OR ARE YOU A MEMBER OF THE BODY OF CHRIST??? YOU MIGHT BE THINKING, IS THERE A DIFFERENCE??? THE ANSWER IS YES!!!
1 Corinthians 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 1 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 1 Corinthians 6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
YOU, THE BELIEVER IN CHRIST JESUS WAS BOUGHT AND PAID FOR WITH A PRICE, THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST!!! HE LIVES INSIDE THE HEART OF EVERY BELIEVER IN CHRIST JESUS. THAT MAKES YOU A MEMBER OF THE BODY OF CHRIST, NOT A MEMBER OF A RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATION IN A BUILDING, BUT A MEMBER OF THE ONE AND ONLY BODY OF CHRIST JESUS!!!
THE BODY OF CHRIST IS THE CHURCH!!!
1 Corinthians 12:12 For AS THE BODY IS ONE, AND HATH MANY MEMBERS, and ALL THE MEMBERS OF THAT ONE BODY, being many, ARE ONE BODY: SO ALSO IS CHRIST. 1 Corinthians 12:13 For BY ONE SPIRIT ARE WE ALL BAPTIZED INTO ONE BODY, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been ALL MADE TO DRINK INTO ONE SPIRIT. 1 Corinthians 12:14 For THE BODY IS NOT ONE MEMBER, BUT MANY. 1 Corinthians 12:15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? 1 Corinthians 12:16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? 1 Corinthians 12:17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? 1 Corinthians 12:18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. 1 Corinthians 12:19 And if they were all one member, where were the body? 1 Corinthians 12:20 But NOW ARE THEY MANY MEMBERS, YET BUT ONE BODY. 1 Corinthians 12:21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. 1 Corinthians 12:22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary: 1 Corinthians 12:23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness. 1 Corinthians 12:24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: 1 Corinthians 12:25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.
IN OTHER WORDS THE BODY OF CHRIST IS MADE UP OF ALL ETHNIC GROUPS, COLORS, SHAPES, SIZES, RICH, POOR, HOMELESS, PROSPEROUS OR JOBLESS, IT DOESN’T MATTER. IT’S NOT A CLICQUE OR GROUP THAT YOU JOIN FOR SOCIAL STATUS, YOU ARE CALLED AND CHOSEN BY JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF TO BE A MEMBER OF HIS BODY!!!
John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the
Father in my name,
he may give it you.
Colossians 1:18 And HE IS THE HEAD OF THE BODY, THE CHURCH: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
Colossians 1:24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions OF CHRIST IN MY FLESH FOR HIS BODY’S SAKE, WHICH IS THE CHURCH.
Romans 12:4 For as WE HAVE MANY MEMBERS IN ONE BODY, and all members have not the same office. Romans 12:5 So WE, BEING MANY, ARE ONE BODY IN CHRIST, AND EVERY ONE MEMBERS ONE OF ANOTHER.
1 Corinthians 12:27 Now YE ARE THE BODY OF CHRIST, and members in particular.
Ephesians 5:30 For WE ARE MEMBERS OF HIS BODY, OF HIS FLESH, AND OF HIS BONES.
THE TRUE CHURCH IS; THE TRUE, CHOSEN BELIEVERS IN CHRIST JESUS!!!
