Today we will look at the song If We Are The Body by Casting Crowns. This song is now one of my favorites, because of the message it brings. It is amazing how a good songwriter (like the one who wrote this song) can fit so much information into a few verses.
In this song, we hear the word “body” fairly often. The phrase “if we are the body…” is also repeated throughout the song. What is the body?
In this song, the term “body” refers to us. We are the body of Christ. As a Christian, you are a part of the body of Christ.
If we are the body
Why aren’t His arms reaching?
Why aren’t His hands healing?
Why aren’t His words teaching?
We make up the body of Christ. Jesus was given power over all things, and that is the same power we are able to use as Christians. While on earth, Jesus did many wonderful things. He reached out to those in need, healed the sick and wounded, and taught those who needed teaching. As the body of Christ, we are also called to do those things, and given the power through Christ to succeed. Reach out in love. Aid those who need to be healed. Teach those who need to be taught.
Make this your goal for the weekend. Reach out to those who need love. Help those who need help. Teach those who need to be taught. Monday, we will look into each subject more deeply, so please come back and spread the word. Every Christian needs to hear these things. Not because I am saying them, but because Jesus lived them.
What are some ways you have found to implement these things into your daily routine?
