The local church is not a group of spectators. Each and every member contributes to God’s work. We are responsible to labor for resolution of problems throughout the Body of Christ, including its leadership and administration – by prayer, fasting, and by our actions within the Body. When God’s work is accomplished, it is by His hand. However, His action is tied to the health and vigor of the body, which is our collective and individual duty.
Luke 12:11-12 – 1 Corinthians 1:26 – Philippians 1:6-7 – membership – Church – congregation – prayer – fasting – gospel
