Praise God for giving us the Church

The apostle Paul says that God gave us apostles, teachers, workers of miracles, helpers.... oh it's a long list.

In addition to specific gifts, the Church is also the community he gave us. They live in us and we in them. They are a part of us. When we are sad, because they are a part of us, out of the blue we might get a call from someone cheering us up. Or even if we don't get a call, someone somewhere is told by the holy spirit that she should pray for us.

We were also given the blessings brought by the blood of Jesus. Love, healing, power, communal authority. Praise ye the Lord
