Purpose in the Body of Christ

You know what I think we all need to be talking about more? Purpose. Not purpose in life, but purpose in the Body of Christ. Every single Believer has purpose in the Body of Christ. Each one has gifts and has the capability to reach those in their current situation. I don't think you have to jump out of your vocational calling to be effective as a Believer. That is part of your calling. But we all have a message to give to the world. You are loved. You are forgiven. You are free. Jesus made sure of that. Once you cross from darkness to light, you have Jesus living on the inside of you. And He wants to say something to the world. Don't wait until you think you have crossed some illusionary line of readiness. Let people know they are loved now.

We are ambassadors of the Anointed One who carry the message of Christ to the world, as though God were tenderly pleading with them directly through our lips. So we tenderly plead with you on Christ’s behalf, “Turn back to God and be reconciled to him.” For God made the only one who did not know sin to become sin for us, so that we who did not know righteousness might become the righteousness of God through our union with him.-2 Corinthians 5: 20-21 (The Passion Translation)
