Day 3

Be a Member of Christ’s Church
Everyone realizes that the professing church today is not the glorious reality sketched in the symbolism of Old Testament Scripture, e.g. Song of Songs 6:10. Nor has the church ever fulfilled the description of the New Testament: 
“A woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head” (Revelation 12:1).
Have you built your faith, not upon a human creed, but upon Christ, the church’s one Foundation? Have you received the anointing of the Holy Spirit? He is yours immediately upon your committal to Christ. Do you bear the mark of the genuine disciple?
“By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another” (John 13:35). 
Do you live your life so that in the Last Great Day, Christ will say “Yes!” to you? 
“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world .... I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me’” (Matthew 25:34, 40).
In Christ, you are a member of that true church against which the gates of hell shall never prevail.
Think carefully. What is your faith built on? How safe is it from the disappointments and shocks of life?
By Dr. Desmond Ford
