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.

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.

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.

I am really encouraged by this hymn, especially now , I just lost both of my parents last month January 2 (My Mom),and on the 30th (My Dad). I really thank the Lord He placed me in the Body. Thank you saints (Philippines and Toronto/ US) for all your prayers and support.

The hymns are hymns of love for the saints. How we really need to love the brothers and sisters as God has placed us in the Body.
