I think many will have thoughts on this, as do I.

I definitely have a great many thoughts on this. Paul called the gospel "my gospel" in 3 places. He did not receive this gospel from the 12 apostles, but from the Lord directly. In Paul's time, as well as ours, there is "a different gospel" being proclaimed. This is quite serious and worthy of much discussion. But as you say, who has thoughts on this?

The sad thing is, many people try to put all of the glory of God to be exclusively on the Father, the Son, the Church, but very infrequently do they recognize that the church is a many membered BODY and that we are members in particular, as in, we EACH individually have a role and a responsibility to fulfill in expressing/manifesting the glory of God.

Manifesting the glory of God does not contain the fulfilling of any of the lusts of the flesh, it consists of loving God so far above all else that the importance of carnal things vanish away because of being so immersed in the presence of God that nothing else is even worthy to be compared with it.

As we personally take this responsibility upon ourselves and begin to fulfill it, the Glory of God becomes visible. The church is edified, the Lordship of the Lord Jesus Christ is put on display, and the glory of God begins to fill the earth, FIRST the lumps of clay that we are, then in our families, our church and communities, and it expands outward to the uttermost ends of the earth, until ALL of the earth is filled with the glory of God.

There are NO insignificant parts in the Body of Christ - the Family of God.

Just because we may not fully understand the complete importance of our role in the Body, does NOT diminish in the least the significance of fulfilling our role in the Body, and how THAT fulfilling puts the glory of God on display.

 

Blessings and Shalom,
