“God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself.” Ephesians 1:22-23 NLT
As born again believers in Jesus Christ we are the church - His body, over which Christ is the head and has been given all authority.
As the body we have responsibilities.
“Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.” Hebrews 10:23-25 NLT
We are to...
...hold tightly to the hope we affirm
...think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works
...not neglect our meeting together
...encourage one another
As we begin a new year, make being a part of the body of Christ a priority. Don't let go of your hope in Christ...be an example to others...be in church at each opportunity available...be an encourager to others .
We are His body.
