Body Life

Re:Verse passage – John 19:1-30 (day five)

Then He *said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” From that hour the disciple took her into his own household.

With these instructions for John, Jesus begins a new paradigm for relationships and ministry within the community of faith- the responsibility of loving and caring for one another.  The custom would have been for Jesus to place his mother in the care and provision of his brothers.  Keep it in the family. Jesus has a new model for love and care- the family of God. We are meant to find encouragement, love, provision, and great care in our church family.  Have you received this kind of  kindness and concern from brothers and sisters in Christ? Do you show it to others in your Bible Study group?  Circle of 6? Network of church friends?

As we live together in our community of faith, let us do (Body Life) loving and caring for each other in the Body of Christ.

  1. You asked if we have received the kind of kindness and concern from brothers and sisters in Christ. A resounding YES. The Freedom Class is quick to offer a word of encouragement, send cards, send emails, and pray faithfully when made aware of a members need. We have faced a number of challenges in the past year and they have faithfully prayed for God to intervene and those prayers were answered. We have not experienced this kind of love in any other congregation we have been a part of. FBC is a truly special place.
