The growth in the body takes place as each member engages in the utilization of the power that Christ, through the Holy Spirit, has placed in us.  We do not want to be an ineffective congregation. Every one needs to be doing some kind of work in the church or we are creating a weak body. We will get thrown on the heap pile of waste. We will become a wasteland! We are only as strong as our weakest member.

The Apostle Paul shares God’s purpose for him in the Church: He personalizes the Great Commission.  The discipling church glorifies God by producing the healthy Christians to do the work of Jesus. (John 15:8) “By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.”

God has moved in our lives and forgiven us of our sins so that we can do His bidding in the community. We are saved for a purpose.  Friends, if we want to, Put the Doctrine in Practice, we have got to ask God what is He doing in our community and can we join Him in that action.

Is ACTS – A Church That Studies, Putting the Doctrine we teach into Practice? As a Church entering our teen years are we being realistic about our future or are we idealistic. As our world becomes more complex, every day, we must continue to develop an identity that will carry us through many years to come. We do not want to become a church stagnated and identified by our own isolation from our community. The Lord’s mandate for His Church; is to develop the basic strengths of Devotion and Fidelity.

God is praiseworthy! In Psalm 138, King David had come to a place in his life where he realized that God had placed within him specific skills and passions not for the purpose of making him so great but to make the difference in others’ lives through his success.

When Jesus called disciples, He carefully instructed them about the cost of following Him. Halfhearted people who weren’t willing to make the commitment did not respond. Thus He turned away anyone who was reluctant to pay the price – like the rich young ruler. He warned all who thought of becoming disciples to count the cost carefully.

Romans 8:9 sets before us a double description of the character and the position of the child of God. Negatively, we are not in the flesh, even though we are forced to confess that the flesh is in us. Positively, we are in the Spirit. The proof of our position in Christ is that the Holy Spirit dwells in us. (Barnhouse, 1959)

“The biblical picture of the church as a body reminds us that we are called to a life of good works. Even as our own bodies act to carry out the intentions of our minds, so the body of Christ acts on earth to carry out the intentions of Jesus, our living Head.”

The “Irreducible Core” of each Christian is to “Love Like God Loves”. When we Love God, and love others, and make disciples; we build an irreducible core into our Church.
