So how do you live out your “bond” with Jesus?
This week we will continue our series in which we are seeking to address the “gap of Easter” in how the resurrection of Jesus 2,000 years ago actually makes a difference in the here and now of our present lives.
This week we will explore how we live out our “bond” with Jesus by offering ourselves to Him in worship. In doing so, we are reminded that worship is not just singing songs but actually surrendering our entire body to Jesus.
Unfortunately and in step with the culture we live in, many Christians assume that as long as our actions aren’t hurting someone else, what we actually do with our bodies is of little consequence to our faith. However this couldn’t be farther from the truth! Consider: Jesus gave His entire body for our salvation, His entire body was raised in glory on Easter, and Jesus will return bodily again to us at His Second Coming (Parousia). Therefore, being a Christian is a “bodily” experience in which our whole being (not just our “soul”) is united to Him in the bond of the Spirit. Therefore, worship is a bodily experience of giving ourselves to Him for His service and glory!
I look forward to sharing more with you on this important topic this coming Sunday!
