Can we make the Body of Christ more pure?

The thought is this...

Jesus came to save us and to cleans us from sin. It was His Blood that makes us pure. Yet, there seem to be some that think that Jesus can be made more pure with their help! They think that we must make the Body of Christ more pure by our works and man made doctrines.

What a slap in the face to Jesus!

If one can grasp that there is not one person that can add to the purity that is Jesus Christ then I hope they can see that there is not anything more to add to His purification.

If Jesus was and is pure, and he had no sin in Him, and we who are in Christ are placed in Him having had our sin forgiven and cleansed by His blood, how can we make the Body of Christ more pure by anything we do?

Grace is so awesome... and there is great fear that can come when one is faced with the freedom that comes with the Life of Christ. With that we are no longer bound by Laws except the Law of Love! We then are bound to love one another as Christ loved us.

It is Jesus Christ that purifies us... and in no way can we purify Jesus' Body, the church any better than He can... to think so lacks true faith in the sufficiency of the Grace of God and the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.

To add anything to the works of Jesus is reducing Grace from its true glory.

Be Blessed,
