The body of Christ needs YOU, and YOU, and YOU! We are incomplete without God, and one another.

“Diverse weights are an abomination to the LORD, and a false balance is not good” (Proverbs 20:23).
“There is desirable treasure, and oil [very fruitful] in the dwelling of the wise, but a foolish man squanders it [to be led astray]. He who follows righteousness and mercy finds life, righteousness and honor. A wise man scales the city of the mighty, and brings down the trusted stronghold. Whoever guards [watchman over] his mouth and tongue keeps his soul from troubles” (Proverbs 21:20-23).
In the U.S.A., we have enjoyed the blessings of the Lord God for many years. We have taken a blessed life for granted. People all over the world seek to come here looking for new opportunities, yet they fail to realize why America’s citizens experience such blessings. Our blessings come from God Almighty. America was unashamedly founded upon God’s principals, and even though we have not been perfect, God has been faithful to His promises. However, we have sinned greatly over the past forty years and the consequences are now birthed in every area of society.
Mankind can no longer solve the multifaceted social problems we face. Bringing down one group of people to lift up another has always been an abomination to God (Proverbs 20:23). Believers must rise up and invite God back into our midst. There is only one true God, and Him alone shall we serve. Everywhere we look, God and His influence has been removed from our culture; removing His protection and blessings. God blessed America because America drew near to God, and blessed Israel (Genesis 12:3).
“But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes’ and your ‘No’ be ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one” (Matthew 5:37).
Sadly, the enemy knows the Word of God better than most Christians, and it is because of this lack of knowledge that he is able to defeat many good people. It is time to humble ourselves, pray, and seek God with all of our heart. Daily we make choices as to how we will use, or squander, the time God has provided. We must love the Lord our God with all of our heart!
The body of Christ needs YOU, and YOU, and YOU! We are nothing without God, and one another.
If you are not sure of your position in the body of Christ, ask God. He has a very special place for every human being to fulfill. Without you, the rest of His body suffers! God will heal the body of Christ as each believer submits to God’s will.
