The wisdom of God is manifest on earth today in the Church as Christs Body.The Devil is actively building his church today too - Babylon - a great congregation of people gathered to hear an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14-15)!The 2 hours or the 10% you offer to God on Sunday morning are a waste, if the rest of your time or money does not belong to Him!Babylon is full of people who have a What is the minimum I have to give mentality toward God.Jesus had to come in a body so that He could give up His will and do His Fathers will that is the only offering that God accepts (Hebrews 10:5-9). The same is true about His Body today, the Church.You cant say that you give God all the glory after youve gone ahead and done your will. He doesnt accept it.The best worship service you can have is when you give up your will and do Gods will (Romans 12:1). And you dont need any musical talent at all for that!If you came to Christ but didnt get a completely new way of thinking, you got a counterfeit Jesus!If your mind is not renewed, changing any outward thing will not free you from being conformed to the world (Romans 12:2).I am a more mature Christian today if I think more like God and less like myself, than I did yesterday!The value you add to the Church is measured not by how gifted you are but by how much faith you have (Romans 12:3). Gift makes you look big; faith makes God look big.Babylon is great because its full of great people. The Body of Christ, instead, consists of grains of wheat that were willing to fall into the ground and die, to bear much fruit.Babylon is characterized by self-esteem. The Body of Christ is characterized by other-esteem (Philippians 2:3-4).The Body of Christ, like its Head, is willing to appear to be a Loser for the sake of others around them who feel like losers.Babylon is full of gifted people. The Body of Christ is full of people with faith.For the video and audio of the full message contaning these quotes, go to:http://rlcfchurch.org/wisdom-babyon-and-the-body-of-christ/
