Serve and work within the Body

Serve and work within the Body,
  This the Lord doth signify;
For His purpose is the Body,
  And with it we must comply.
  Serve and work within the Body,
  Never independently;
As the members of the Body,
    Functioning relatedly.
As the members we've been quickened
  Not as individuals free;
We must always serve together,
  All related mutually.
Living stones, we're built together
  And a house for God must be,
As the holy priesthood serving,
  In a blessed harmony.
Thus we must be built together,
  In position minister;
For the basis of our service
  Is the body character.
In our ministry and service,
  From the Body, our supply;
If detached and isolated,
  Out of function we will die.
'Tis by serving in the Body
  Riches of the Head we share;
'Tis by functioning as members
  Christ's full measure we will bear.
To the Head fast holding ever,
  That we may together grow,
From the Head supplies incoming
  Thru us to the Body flow.
Lord, anew we give our bodies;
  May we be transformed to prove
All Thy will, to know Thy Body,
  And therein to serve and move.

God's hearts desire is for a Body holding Him as the Head. The greatest joy of Christian living is being built up in the Body, having our hearts knit together in love to serve one another and with one another as members in the Lord's Body.

This is the true picture of how to practice the genuine of the priesthood which is in the Body, with the Body, for the Body! May all the localities be brought into this genuine practice and recovery of the priesthood!

Challenging! This goes against my natural tendency to be a loner.
