One Body in Heaven and Earth!


"We ought to thank God always for you,
as is fitting, because your faith flourishes ever more,
and the love of every one of you
for one another grows ever greater."
2 Thes. 1:3

Yes, I thank God for my brothers and sisters
in my community!
We are one body, and like different parts of the body,
we grow together, we work together,
we use our different gifts for the good of the body.

Can you imagine if one hand refused to do its part?
It wants to do the work of the mouth but it can't!!
Or if the lungs stayed so small only a baby
could survive on the air it inhaled?

"The Book of Revelation describes 
a divine liturgy taking place
in heaven (Rev. 4-5)
It is a thrilling, beautiful description
of jubilant singing and deep worship.
But there is no separation
between that divine liturgy 
and our own earthly liturgy." (Word Among Us)

How exciting to think about the Church
as united both in heaven and earth,
worshiping and praising God!

We are also one body with the 
angels and saints in Heaven!


Each week I choose one from those who comment
to pick an ATC for me to send them

  5. It sounds absurd to think of our body parts refusing to do their jobs, doesn't it? Oh, that we might have eyes to hear!
