1 Corinthians 12:27 (NET)
Now you are Christ’s body, and each of you is a member of it.
Because of the way she grew up, Sandra had a terrible inferiority complex. Her mother made her believe she was not as talented and valuable as her other sisters because she was not as beautiful and outgoing.
After Sandra believed in the Lord Jesus, she still struggled with inferiority complex and insecurity until she heard a Teaching based on today’s Bible verse. She was made to understand that her salvation was no coincidence and that even her birth into this world was because God had predestined her unto salvation before the foundation of the world (see Eph 1:4, Rev 17:8, 13:8), and that she was now a member of the body of Christ. No member of the body of Christ should ever feel inferior in this world because “as He is so also are we in this world” (1 John 4:17).
All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to the Lord Jesus (Matt 28:18). As a member of His body, you share in this authority. As a member of the body of Christ, no sickness, demon or situation can kill you before your time. You are more than a conqueror because you are a member of the body of Christ (Rom 8:37).
Disciples of Christ that believe this truth are the ones who walk in it. They expect life to respond to them the way it would respond to Christ because they are members of Christ’s body. When believers come together in unity, we can invoke the full power of Christ’s body because we (together) are Christ’s body (see Matt 16:19, Matt 18:18, John 20:23).
Go into today confessing and constantly reminding yourself that you are a member of the body of Christ. Expect to see life respond to you differently because of this reality that is being activated in your life through faith.
