(DOWNLOAD MP3) DISCERNING THE BODY OF CHRIST BY APOSTLE JOSHUA SELMAN – Koinonia Abuja
No believer (no matter how well intentioned) can grow accurately, if they are isolated from other dimensions, within the body of Christ.
God equips Believers with the necessary knowledge and skills for their calling and assignment.
As a result, there is a tendency to mentor people from a point of limitation, having only learnt the skill set that is specific to a calling and assignment.
Because they lack the requisite skill set, these mentees have deficiencies in their lives that will become apparent over time. Many have allowed the multifaceted dimensions of God, distributed throughout The Body of Christ for our development and growth to be hindered by their ego, insecurity and fear.
Feeling weak and incapacitated to admit that you do not know it all, in order to acquire or outsource intelligence in your area of deficiency, is one of the deficiencies in The Body of Christ.
Many people are resistant to the various dimensions of the Body of Christ due to two legitimate types of fears:
1. The fear of being corrupted by certain corrupt practices in the Body of Christ.
2. Fear as a result of believing that if you open up to receiving certain dimensions of God, you may lose your relationship with God.
