BIBLE READING: 1 Corinthians 12:12-31
Christians have the huge responsibility of making sure we introduce the lost of this would to Jesus Christ. First Corinthians 12:27 reminds us that we are the “body of Christ.” Although Christ ascended back into heaven, He is still here today in the form of the church. We are left with the incredible duty of making sure that Jesus is still alive and well in this world, living through us. So when someone sees us, they should ultimately see Jesus.
Paul reminds us just how important our role is when he says that there will be a day when the Lord returns to this earth “with His mighty angels in flaming fire, inflicting vengeance on those who do not know God and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus” (2 Thessalonians 1:7-8). I may not be able to do anything about those who don’t obey, but I can do something about those who don’t know Him.
Application: Have you done all you can to make sure that everyone knows about the wonderful grace of Jesus Christ? If not, get to work because it is our responsibility!
