Learning about the “Body of Christ”

Over the last several weeks, I have been spending a fair amount of time understand better what the “Body of Christ” means.

I started by searching for tweets on “Body of Christ”  https://twitter.com/IAMFollowerTodd where there is a wealth of extremely thoughtful reflections on what the “Body of Christ” can mean to you and me.

Here are some of my favorite tweets:

About GettingCloserToOurGod

This blog is written by Todd Christenson. He was raised in Nebraska and currently lives on Long Island in New York. Though out my childhood, my family attended church. We prayed together at meals. I thought I was prepared for life. After college, I moved to New York City. Shy, unsure of myself, building an identity in worldly things, increasingly prideful, self-righteousness, a controlling nature. In 2013, God spoke through someone, suggesting I confess my sins. I did. I realized that every day, I’d been glorifying myself, not God. Today, God’s teaching me to have my identity in Him, only, my dependency in Him, not myself, being who He wants me to be, not the world, loving Him first, loving others as myself.
