One of the things I love about the Bible is that the writers use powerful word pictures and images to express ideas and highlight realities God wants us to experience.
Jesus followers throughout history, today and on into the future are pictured as a body. Each of us is a part.
God is intense in His purpose to activate us into a life of kingdom service in our ordinary lives. We are His plan wherever we go today.
As we get moving we “grow up” and together we will become the full expression of who Jesus is on a worldwide scale!
Part of growing up is learning to walk the balance beam of carrying each others burdens while we carry our own load. Take a few minutes today to ask the Holy Spirit what that means in your life and courage for all of us to “grow up” in our love for each other.
