Now you [collectively] are Christ’s body and [individually] you are members of it, each part severally and distinct [each with his own place and function].

1 cORINTHIANS 12:27

The Word of God calls believers the “Body of Christ”; we are also referred to as the “Bride of Christ”. Whichever, we are all one in the Lord. Each one has their separate duties, but together we make up a whole.

Just as there is order in an army, so is there divine order in God’s army. There should not be any confusion, strife or jealousy in God’s army. There is only one body, one voice with everyone working together in harmony, proclaiming the Good News of the Gospel. We need to honor and respect one another in the fear of the Lord.

We need to learn how to honor, respect and appreciate one another, to understand exactly how the body functions. We need to know that it is unacceptable to walk around as witnesses of the Lord, having bitterness, jealousy, hatred and anger in our hearts towards another member of the “Body”.

To walk in this understanding, you need to have the Word of God as a priority in your personal life. You need to be ordered, disciplined and directed by the Lord to keep the harmony.

Changes starts with you and I. Stop pointing fingers and examine your own hearts.
