Luke 15:1-32
No matter where we live, we all same in front of GOD.
But our faith will define how strong we're shining...

I think Byblos said it so well.

You know, Ive learnt a valuable insight recently.

Was talking to an ex bestfriend who will be 'getting back' into the 'body of christ' and being in community soon....

Well, forget being 'part of the body of Christ' with that attitude..

The body of christ does NOT start when you join a church.
It starts here right now. With you and me. With each other.

We are the body of Christ. You and me. And each of us with each other. Together, where we are, as we are.

A person becomes part of the 'body of Christ' the moment of their salvation. The Holy Spirit comes to indwell and stays until we are with Christ. Jesus' prayer found in John 17 talks about unity in Christ. In as much as is possible we are to get along with all. In as much as possible -- in other words - at times, there Will be those that simply don't fit together -- but they are still part of the body of Christ.

Annette I saw this video last week and I thought of myself firstly and I thought of you.
It's not my usual style and I do know a few things about the ministry which are questionable but the overall message in this video I like.
Forgiveness God gives abundantly, we fail do so for ourselves y>:D<

In to say I really like this quote. It's so much harder to put yourself out there and feel connected if you're weighed down by things you feel ashamed of.

Aaand it doesn't display properly in my quote. Fine, have it your way, image y[-(
