Welcome to this series of devotional posts based on ‘Roots & Wings’ an integrative Bible study for discipleship, written by Pastor Edmund Chan, our guest speaker at RISE, QB Convention 2015. Our thoughts will be based around five areas: our human weakness, the resulting problem, the radical re-orientation, the critical need, and the empowered life of Roots & Wings.
TOPIC: Biblical Empowering (Securing A Lifeline)
The Empowered Life of Roots and Wings: An empowered life (Eph 4:11-16)
What a body! Perfect function deriving its coordinated movement from central control. Unified: muscles, sinews, bones, nerves, thoughts, nutrients, waste disposal, cooling system – picture perfect. Not physical, but the church. Who controls? The Head, Jesus. Where do you “fit” in the body? Jesus decides, not you. But you are a valued part of the body. The rest of us need you.
