A.W. Tozer said, “What the church does is what the individuals do.” On the questions of who is the church? And what does the church do? I believe this is why unity of the church is so important. Paul likens the Christian church to a body. With this metaphor continuing into unity… can’t we say that a body cannot function without unity and single purpose. We cannot have but one mind (brain), or the body would not and could not move even the slightest bit forward. No wonder we have such a hard time following Christ. As a body we are not listening to the brain, the head of the church who is Christ.
Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.
1 Corintians 12:27
Somehow the spinal cord has been broken. But, the damage can be healed. It will be a miracle and it is a miracle each and every time the Lord of Host moves through, in and around the Church. He will move us, if we refuse to move he still will. Praise the Lord!
