The Body of Christ


The church is not called a collective, but a Body. If anyone would come to it with the misconception that the church was some massing together of persons as if they were pennies or chips, this person would be corrected by the discovery that the Head of the Body is completely unlike its inferior members – they do not share divinity with Him, except by the Head and Body analogy. What the analogy does do for us is to relate the connection of the Body to the Head…that we are creatures with our Creator, mortals with the immortal, redeemed sinners with the sinless Redeemer. His presence…the interaction between Him as us…must always be the overwhelmingly dominant factor in the life we are to lead within the body…
paraphrased from Transposition and Other Addresses in Daily Walk. Blessings,
