I’m thankful that God has placed me

1
I’m thankful that God has placed me
With you to build up His Body.
Christ in you is the hope for me!
You also need Christ lived in me.
  I live, if you stand firm in the Lord.
You live, if I stand firm in the Lord.
My going on is for you,
Your going on is for me,
Not sep’rate entities,
I need you saints desp’rately!
2
Oh, what a sweet church life have we!
Built up in Him, His bride to be!
In Him steadfast, you help me be;
Encouraged by Christ whom I see.
3
Your faith in Christ helps me pursue;
My progress depends upon you!
As I seek Christ, with you in view,
My heart, full of prayers, is for you.
4
God’s heart longs, desires that we,
His lovers, seek Him corp’rately.
On each other spent constantly;
My life is for you, yours for me.
5
I want to encourage you all,
Without your supply I would fall.
Never think that your Christ is small.
Christ needs you, and so do we all.

Oh, praise the Lord. He just supplied me with life through a representative group of saints going on with Him throughout time and space!

Wow...I want to encourage you all, without your supply I would fall, never think that your Christ is too small, Christ needs you and so do we all. The Lord desires a corporate bride, our being together, loving the Lord together speeds up this preparation process-the bridizing process so we can meet our Groom that Day. Praise You Lord.

Philippians 4:1 So then, my brothers, beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, in the same way stand firm in the Lord, beloved.

1 Thess. 3:8, 12 Because now we live if you stand firm in the Lord...And the Lord cause you to increase and abound in love to one another and to all, just as we also to you....

I want to encourage you all, without your supply I would fall. Never think that your Christ is so small. Christ needs you, and so we do all. We need each member of the Body. How wonderful that God has placed me in the Body which is the church today. The church life is the place to stay and there's no other home for me.

“But now God has placed the members, each one of them, in the body, even as He willed”.

Praise the Lord! We are “individually members one of another”. Each member is organically joined to all the others, and each needs the function of all the others. No member can live apart from the Body.

God is not after a group of spiritual and sinless people. Rather, He is after a Body. Only our being in the Body will have eternal value in the eyes of God.

Christ needs you, and so do we all.


David

Praise the Lord we are in the Body!! Praise the Lord we are members in the Body!! We are not members individually, our going on is not merely by ourselves but it is in the Body! How precious His Body, praise the Lord He has put us in the Body and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against the builded church!! Praise the Lord Satan trembles in the Body!! Praise the Lord we are in the Body now, and may the Lord keep us safe in His ark! Jesus is Lord!!

I really love this song because it reminds me always that I can't live, I can't stand by myself without the other members of the Body.
