In His resurrection Christ produced the church, which is the living composition of the many brothers of the Firstborn Son of God(Rom. 8:29)! The church is not just a gathering of the believers, but it is something organic, the Body of Christ – something of life. We are the many brothers not of the Only Begotten Son of God(who has only divinity; John 3:16) but of the Firstborn Son of God(who has both divinity and humanity; Acts 13:33) – and we also have both the human nature and the divine nature!
The church is a living organism filled with life
This is so real and yet so mysterious: the church has two lives and two natures, and these two are combined and mingled together in an organic way… Christ is both the Son of God and the Son of Man, having both divinity and humanity, and He is the rich supply, the rich store, for us to enjoy and partake of! This wonderful One, Christ, is the life of the church – and we are being filled with Him, with all His attributes and all His virtues!
NEVER think that since the church in your locality has some problems it is “not a good church”. Some dear believers in the Lord get stumbled sometimes because of some problems that are in the church life, and they think that moving to another locality to be in another local church may be better… But we need to realize that the church is something organic, just like our human body. Our body may be very tired and sick-ish one day but after a proper rest, treatment, and feeding it is back in action. Life takes care of all the problems – and in the church life it is the same!
There is no church that is not good – the church is organic!
The churches in the Lord’s recovery are something organic, something of life. There is no church that is not good – even though outwardly you may think that a church is not doing that well, after a period of time you will see that this church will become different! It’s not of anyone’s organization, improvement, or teaching – it is of the divine life in each of the members of the Body! The church is not something organizational; the church is an organism, something of life, which “takes care of itself” = builds itself up in love(Eph. 4:16)!
Nothing is better and richer than life – the best life in the universe is the divine life, and the second best life is the human life! The human life we as believers have today is the resurrected and uplifted human life! This human life plus the divine life is the life of the church. Even though we may fail today, when we all enjoy the divine life in us flowing and growing, we will be healed and we will go on with the Lord in no time!
The church is a living corporation of all the brothers of the firstborn Son of God!
The church is a living composition of all the sons of God – a living corporation of all the brothers of the firstborn Son of God! This divine life in us can do it – it can fill us, transform us, conform us to the image of the firstborn Son of God(Rom. 8:29), and can live the church life for the building up of the Body of Christ! Praise the Lord for the divine life He imparted into us in His resurrection, making us the many sons of God and the many brothers of Christ! [sharing inspired from the life-study of Hebrews as quoted in Morning Revival on the Crystallization-Study of Psalms(1); you can get the morning revival book online or become a fan on Facebook for more updates. Intro: The Church is a Living Composition…]
Thank You Lord Jesus for Your divine life in us – praise You for making us the organic Body of Christ. Save us from thinking or believing that the church is something organizational; uplift our view to see that the church is something organic! The church is the living composition of the many sons of God! We as the many sons of God and the brothers of Christ are the organic parts of the church! Lord, bless the church life. Bless all the churches with much enjoyment of life and much growth in life!
