The Comfort of God

“The body of Christ” is a mysterious phrase used more than 30 times in the New Testament.  The apostle Paul especially settled on that phrase as an image of the church.  After Jesus ascended to heaven, He turned over His mission to flawed and bumbling men and women.  He assumed the role of head of the church, leaving the tasks of arms, legs, ears, eyes, and voice to His flawed human  disciples – and to you and me.

 

REFLECTIONS

Biblical Greek has two words that are translated as the word “time.”  One is chronos indicating time as measured by a clock or calendar.  This kind of time governs when we go to bed at night, wake up in the morning to get to school or work, pick up the kids from school and show up for our medical appointment with our doctor.  Chronos is the time that governs our daily lives. The Bible also talks about kairos time.  Kairos refers to both a special season of life when certain actions are appropriate or to a time of exceptional opportunity from God.
