Other writers on the blog have shared this month about the reality that followers of Christ are His body in the earth today. But what do we do as His body? Is His body divided in loyalty and purpose? Or is His body united in one purpose and one focus?

Having a bunch of believers in a living room does not make them the church. It will only be when that group of people come to the revelation of Christ in them, that He is their godliness.

I remember when I first heard someone tell a bunch of believers that the head is not separate to the body, in relation to Christ The Head and the Church. I thought it was funny and an odd thing that as Christians we would need to have that put so bluntly to us. It's such an obvious truth, right?. But is it?
Christ is our Head, and we are His Body. But we haven't grown up unto full stature yet. In the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, we have been raised up and seated with Him. In the earthly places, we're still flailing our arms about and falling down over and over again.
This eternal purpose stems from the Father's love for the Son through the Spirit. God then desires for that love, that expression of life, to be increased through us; that's where we come in. It's not for us nor about us. This is all for Him and about Him. Yet, we claim some form of possession over it.
Brothers and sisters, we have been adopted as sons into the family of Christ. This is a legal, heavenly, and positional transaction that takes place whereby we are translated from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light: translated from the old man and into the New Man.
