We consider the church as the body of Christ. We are literally bone of Jesus’ bone and flesh of Jesus’ flesh, one flesh, one body with Jesus Christ as the church, the bride of the Lord. We need to properly understand how a healthy body functions. A body cannot function for just a few hours a week and be healthy. Instead, the church is a 24/7/365 living organism that needs to be functioning and lively to honor the body’s head, Jesus Christ.
