Outpoured for His Body

We’d experience Christ daily,
Him we would constantly pursue.
Our pursuing has a purpose
To build His Body is our view.
  Occupy us for Your Body.
Grace supplying, You afford.
Always bearing, always caring,
By Your grace we’d be outpoured.
Grant us, Lord, a willing spirit.
To build Your Body we would strive.
By our measure we would function,
Until full grown we’d all arrive.
As the members of His Body,
Each one is now a life supply.
Serving Christ to one another,
In love, His Body built thereby.
Leonard Jones


This song reflects the desire of Jesus to see His bride perfectly prepared for His return and the marriage supper He so longs for her to join Him in. Yet so many who name His name have never made this their concern, being preoccupied with the pursuit of blessings for themselves.



I just heard this song for the first time. May all our pursuing have a purpose to build His Body. We pray, "Lord, occupy us for your Body, grace supplying, may we be outpoured for your Body!"
