Christ forms us into a body; into a group of individuals who are united in their purpose and in their love for one another and for the Lord. If an individual stumbles, the rest of the group is there to pick him or her up and help him or her walk with the Lord again. The offender continues to grow up in Christ as they are built up and encouraged by the body of believers and finds restoration through the Church.
Questions for further thought:
1. Ponder this question. How can I grow up into Christ?
2. As part of Christ’s body, how can you reflect part of Christ’s character and carry out your special role in His work?
Challenge: Continue to persevere in “growing up” into Christ.
