The Clarity

I praise God for giving me clarity of how important the body of Christ is, that is the church. Church is the apple of God’s eye; it is the center of the New Testament message. It is His extension of His hands to touch people, of His hands to save people, of His heart to love people.

I had lived in God’s plan long before I came to Melbourne more than a year ago. I came with incomplete understanding of God’s perfect plan until He drew me to a particular church. It is the church in which I learn the importance of fellowship, the importance of brotherhood with all saints. I learn how all ministries should work to build up the body of Christ, to edify the church, to keep her from being tossed back and forth, to help her to grow completely mature in sound and biblical teaching….

Now, I could say that I really love the church like never been before. I come with biblical understanding of what the church means. It is the body of Christ. The center of all ministries....Apostle, prophet, teacher, evangelist, and pastor….all have to work together in harmony for the sake of God’s body. It is improper for a prophet to work out of the body, also the evangelist...teacher…All have to work for the benefit of the church. Universal church? Later…the first is the local church, and then we may be used in a broader context.

Out there, so many wild wolf…ready to devour us. Living under biblical church is the choice.
