When we think of the many, many Christians who prefer the program of Jesus Christ in Matthew, Mark and Luke to the message and program of grace which the risen Lord later revealed to Paul, we are not surprised that most church members act as though they were Old Testament religious sraelites instead of members of the Body of Christ in this age and economy of grace.
Is it not significant that the apostle Paul was the only servant of the Lord to speak of the Church of the Mystery as "the Body of Christ," the Joint-Body? Paul wrote about one-half of the Books from Matthew to Revelation. In all of his writings and recorded oral ministry, Paul never referred to the kingdom parables of Jesus of Nazareth, the Sermon on the Mount, the "Our Father" prayer, nothing in detail as to what Christ did and taught while He was a Minister of the circumcision. On the contrary, Paul wrote: "Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we Him no more. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, Who hath reconciled us to Himselfby Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation" (II Corinthians 5:16-19).
I once was blind and did not see What Christ, the Lord, had done for me: But by God's grace I now have sight, Through faith in Christ, Who is my light.
