It is a statement that is made to church leaders the country over: “I read my Bible, I pray, I believe in Jesus. That is enough for me.
Paul tells us in Ephesians chapter 4 why the body of Christ, that is His church, is so deftly important for us.
“so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ”
Christ’s body, His church builds us up with the gift of forgiveness, life and salvation in Jesus so that we may withstand the changes and chances and deceitfulness of this world.
