Individually Members Of One Another…

Doing the wrong thing is easy. There is no thought, simply doing. On the other hand, doing the right thing requires thought – requires right thought, followed by action. In order for us to accomplish the right thing we must seek the Kingdom of God, first, with every thought before there is action. We must transform out mind and bind our mind to the Mind of Christ with each thought that we are charged to take into captivity. Every thought. Doing the wrong thing is easy. There is no thought, simply doing.

But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. ~ Romans 7:23 NKJB

Our actions, which manifest from our thoughts, have a direct impact on all who are around us. Those around us may be absent in the moment of our action but upon their return they, too, will be directly impacted by our thoughts that became action. We must consider our thoughts and seek God first. This is where it all begins.

For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith. For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. ~ Romans 12:3-5 NKJB

We are of one another. Jesus Christ is in God and God is in Jesus. Those who have been baptized and accepted Jesus Christ as the Son of God and Savior of their life, Jesus lives in them. We live in Them as They live in us. We are a member of the Body of Christ and we are a member of one-another in Christ.

Our lives are suppose to change at this moment. We are suppose to live for Jesus Christ, but we don’t because we are warring with our flesh, our sinful nature. Seeking God first in all of our thoughts changes this. As our conviction to Christ grows and our practice of thought grows we begin to change. We, however, will never be perfect. But, by the grace of God, things will get better.

Either the Scripture is the divine Word of God teaching us how to live and how to be a reflection of God, or it’s nothing more than a historical account of events.
