A BODY TO DO GOD’S WILL AND WORK

 

 A Body to do gods Will and work

Hebrews 10:5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: 7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy WILL, O God.

 

John 5:36 But I have greater witness than that of John: for the WORKS which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.

 

Jesus our Lord and Savior came to where we were in our fallen state on Earth to die on the Cross as a sacrifice to pay the penalty for the sins of the world. He also came to do the works of God as He went about preaching, teaching, healing, and delivering oppressed humanity from the oppression of the devil and the destructive curse. First John 3:8 also adds “… For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. God the Father prepared a natural human body in the Earth for Jesus to do God’s will (Hebrews 10:5, 7) and to do God’s Work (John 5:36).

 

We are now the Body of Christ and we are in this Body to do God’s Will and Work.  What God did through a Body called Jesus He wants to do through a Body called the Church. Jesus said, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father John 14:12.”

 

God planned for all the Body of Christ to do God’s will and work in the Earth. His plan was for all members of the Church, which is His Body, to become producers not just consumers.  We are not in the Body just to have and experience something but to do and produce something. God has foreordained that we are to produce (Ephesians 2:10). Being a producer is more than a call it is built into us.  We are created to multiply.  It is in our nature (Genesis 1:26-28).  God chose and ordained us to be producers or to bear fruit (John 15:16).

 

When it comes to a local Body of Christ or local Church, being fruitful and productive it takes everyone or as Ephesians 4:16 says, “Every joint supplieth according to the effectual working in the measure of every part maketh increase.”   When the members of the Body find their place and function, churches reap and keep the harvest and have fruit that remains. Members of the Body of Christ need to answer the call of God to the service or ministry and function in their spiritual gifts (Romans 12:3-8; Ephesians 4:11,12; 1 Corinthians12: 7-11).  Great churches are built by great Believers not great sermons.

Pastor John Rasicci is the founder and Pastor of Word of His Grace Church in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, where we are building people who are building the Church. Pastor's ministry mission is to help people discover God's dream for their Life, the Local Church, and the Last Days' Harvest. With a strong emphasis on the grace of God and with a prophetic voice, Pastor John preaches and teaches in churches, conferences, and crusades both locally and throughout the world. He has produced books, tapes, and other teaching materials to empower, enable, and equip Believers with the Word of God. Pastor John is married to his wife Candy who with their three children, Krista, Joanna, John Anthony, and two son-in-laws, Matt and Doug, serve together in the ministry. After graduating from Kent State University, Pastor John pursued a career in professional baseball before accepting the call to the ministry. He and his wife, Candy, received their ministry training from Rhema Bible Training Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
