Singh: Christ breathing through the Church

Friday, August 9, 2013
    Feast of Mary Sumner, Founder of the Mothers’ Union, 1921
    ... Since you are eager to have spiritual gifts, try to excel in gifts that build up the church.
    —1 Corinthians 14:12 (NIV)
    The Church is called ‘the body of Christ’ because the relation between Christ and Christians is not that between a master and his servants. It is more than that. Christians are Christ’s own parts. They are not only friends of Christ, they are Christ Himself. He breathes through them.
    ... Sadhu Sundar Singh (1889-1929), The Message of Sadhu Sundar Singh, B. H. Streeter & A. J. Appasamy, New York: The Macmillan Company, 1922, p. 54 (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 14:12; Rom. 15:2; 1 Cor. 12:13,24-28; 2 Cor. 12:19; Gal. 3:28; Eph. 4:11-13; 1 Thess. 5:11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your church is listening to Your word.
