Oh Body of Christ: By Rev. Victor Atokolo

Oh Body of Christ:

stand with me against the onslaught of darkness, lest I falter;

pray with me when I’m pressured, lest I be overwhelmed;

be loyal to me when men assault me, lest I loose heart;

cheer me when I succeed, lest I loose courage to strive further;

rejoice with me when i rejoice, lest i feel unloved;

mourn with me when i mourn, lest i feel uncared for;

help me when i need help, lest i be stranded; BUT ALSO:

resist me when I am lifted up with pride, lest I be destroyed;

rebuke me when I rebel, lest I perish;

confront me when I preach heresy, lest I take it for granted and think I am right;

wail b4 God for me when I sin, lest I sink into darkness;

oppose me when I turn against God, lest I be dammed.

I need you my fathers, my friends, my sons and daughters.

The road may be rough, but we are tough.

We can brave these challenges together: a hostile economy, hostile legislations, a hostile press, the scourge of human tongues. …

We can brave them all and win, coz we are the Body of Christ.

The woman is as important as the man.

The preacher is as important as the layman. The small man is as important as the big man. We are the Body of Christ.

Let’s not be distracted.

Perilous times are here.

But our banner is lifted high.

Yes, when the dust of battles finally settle, we will still be standing tall, unfettered, victorious!!

Oh Body of Christ, I love you, and I will for all eternity.

You’re the best thing earth has seen since Eden.

Evergreen as the palm by the riverside.

Fresh as the summer wind.

I’m forever proud to be of you.

Long live the Body of Christ!!!
