The Body yearns for ‘connection,’ the Body yearns for ‘community,’ the Body yearns for ‘purpose;’ to be part of something genuine, something greater than the individual part.
Colossians 1:13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and translated (transferred) un into the kingdom of the Son of His Love.
II Corinthians 13:5 - Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?
