I AM building a body made up of many members, and each member is put in place by Me, to function according to the gifts they possess, 1 Corinthians 12:18-20. However every cell must remain healthy or it will cause the whole body to suffer, 1 Corinthians 12:26-27. You, as that cell cannot remain in perfect health unless you spend time alone with Me every day. Every member rubs shoulders with the world each day, picking up pollution as they go about their daily routine. This pollution comes it the form of negative attitude, and skewed vision. In My alone time with you I will reexamine your vision and attitude to perfectly realign it with your calling and purpose, John 17:3,14-18,20-21,23,26.
Neglecting alone time with Me will guarantee poor spiritual health, spiritual sickness, complete loss of vision and purpose! Some of you have been neglecting your alone time with Me and your vision is so bad you can barely make out your salvation. Some of you are hoping you are saved and others are assuming it. Some feel their purpose is to get rich and have fun, feeling more a part of the world than the body. Your love for Me has grown cold and is in word only.
I love every member of My body and each member must remain healthy because I AM coming back for a church without spots or wrinkles. Each member when healthy will see with My heart from a different prospective and supply that prospective to the other cells. Each member will have a special love and understanding heart, for a different segment of the lost society. Some for the addict, some for the children, some for the teens, some for the homosexual, some for the poor, some for the businessman, some for the educators, and some for the medical personnel and on and on.
If you neglect your alone time with Me the first place your vision become skewed is that your prospective is most important. Secondly that yours is the only perspective. Third that you don’t need the other members perspective. Then the final death blow is that the others are wrong and they are the enemy! 1 Corinthians 12:21-25 Do not neglect your alone time with Me, you cannot stay healthy it, no matter how many meetings you go too. You need daily alone time with Me.
