The Corporate Man
Jesus Christ brought the manifest presence and power into the world, but he was just one man. Imagine what would be possible with a million Jesus Christs walking the earth, infiltrating every country and every profession, teaching, preaching, healing, prophesying, and cooperatively turning the world upside down! Believe it or not, that is the potential and purpose of the corporate church – the Body of Christ. Time to join the body!

The incarnation of Jesus Himself was such a surprising move, it was impossible to recognize Jesus unless seeing into the spirit realm. In the same way, it pleases God to inhabit each of us, but it takes spiritual eyes to recognize the “part” of Jesus which is present within each believer. This sermon talks about this mystery and encourages us to look at each other, and ourselves, with spiritual eyes.[/toggle]

In this sermon, Steve describes the nine spiritual gifts listed in 1 Corinthians 12. It is important to identify and practice your own gifting so that you can manifest the kingdom of God in the world around you. It is also important to identify the gifting of others in the church in order to know who turn to for various needs. By each person doing their part, the Body of Christ is able to be alive and active in the world today![/toggle]
