Day 25 We are the body of Christ

Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I do my share on behalf of His body, which is the church, in filling up what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions. Colossians 1:24
Jesus visits those in need, He heals the sick, encourages the depressed and the downhearted. He does all of this by using our humanity. You and I form His body. However, people want to see in us something that reflects Jesus. They want to see the living God speak to them in the present, and for us to be committed to what God does with His people. Basically, we are His Church, the body established by God to represent Him on the earth. We are the legal entity to whom Jesus gave power and authority, to bind and to loosen, to heal the sick and deliver the captives. People want to see God working through us. For that reason, when someone is healed, we show them how amazing God is, and we feel grateful that we were used by Him. We are not the ones who actually perform miracles; God works miracles through us. If all we do is pray, but we never visit the sick, preach to those who need God, or testify of His great power, then we are not part of His body. We must not only pray, but also act.
The movement of the supernatural has long ceased to be something local, and now transcends to the world. It is not an isolated event, it is ongoing and permanent. It does not belong to a certain race or nation; it is something global. You too can join Him!
Let us pray
Heavenly Father, You have called us to preach Jesus Christ to the whole world, and I want to do it Your way, by showing Your supernatural power to this generation. Lord, I’m available to go where You send me. I will fear no evil, for You are with me. You will back me up with miracles, signs and wonders. While
I go, You are with me. While I go, You use my humanity to reach the needy. While I go, You transform minds, hearts are changed and those who are oppressed by the devil are set free. Use me, Jesus! The world will know You
Romans 12:4-5
For just as we have many members in one body and all the members do not have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another
1 Corinthians 12:12
For even as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body, though they are many, are one body, so also is Christ.
Ephesians 4:4
There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling;
