The church of Jesus Christ is the body of Jesus on this earth. Don’t let that go over your head. That is not incidental. It is a fundamental truth that Jesus Christ inhabits His church. He is alive and well. We are His spiritual body.
People ask, if He were here, “What would Jesus do?” Friend, He is here. He lives in us, and if we don’t understand that, we will live superficially and not supernaturally. We are called to be supernatural.
It will be a great day when we learn that Jesus doesn’t want us to do anything for Him. He wants to do something through us. You say, “Dr. Rogers, you’re playing with words.” No, I am not. Paul said, “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me” (Galatians 2:20).
Faith is not something we conjure up—it is a gift given to us.
