Scripture of the Day - February 23, 2012

Ephesians 4:15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

Paul is still talking about the church here. We need to teach and preach the truth in love. We need to grow in the love of Christ, the head of the church, so that we all fit together and work together for the good of the whole body. Each person has a role to play, each person is important. Just because you are not standing behind the pulpit don't think you are not important to the church body. We all minister to each other, we all edify each other... that is...we build each other up. No man is an island, we are all connected to each other and affect each other. We are the church...(the body of Christ)...and the love of Jesus...(who is the head of the church body)... flows through each and every one of us and unites us in that love. Here is a warning from Paul to the church in Rome...Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.Rom. 8:9
