I just started a new book. I’ve had it almost a year but there were other books ahead in the queue.
I am now stuck on p34.
Let me quote it and leave you to react as you see fit.
When was the last time you were awestruck by the fact that you are part of Christ’s body? Have you ever marveled at this privilege?
“For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, because we are members of his body.“
Every believer needs to stare at those verses long enough to be stunned.
from p34 Letters to the Church by Francis Chan
