Christ's Body Continues

A Man with a Balding HeadGod is aware of everyone's name and Jesus knows our personal names. Even the hairs of our head are numbered carefully by him. Jesus told his disciples in Luke 12.7, "Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows." He cares this much for us personally, and individually. The Bible tells us that God knows your name. Isaiah 43.1 reads, "But now thus says the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine." Jeremiah 1.5 agrees, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations." If God knows us, we can know him too for God came to earth to show us what he is like! We know Jesus personally when he dwells in our hearts by faith, and works in our lives. As Jesus was God incarnate, so the Christian is to be Jesus incarnate.

Jesus Continues in Us

Jesus NameChrist's Body continues Jesus' life and work today. Jesus indwells the individual with himself and transforms men, women and children into Christ's personal body. In John 10.14-15 Jesus said, "I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep." John 10.3 adds, "To him the gatekeeper opens. The sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out." It is vitally important that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, knows each of our names.✞
