A Healthy Body

by Apr 19, 2020Love140, Sermon

We are the Church. The Church is the Body Christ. When this Body is healthy, God uses us to change history. That happens with the Body is mobilized by love. The world sees the hope they are searching for when we reach out to them in love. However, if we give in to fear, we are paralyzed. Love mobilizes a body, while fear paralyzes.
