100 Great Things to do in the Body

My pastor preached today about how God has given us everything we need through the Holy Spirit to live godly, righteous lives.  As I considered all that God has invested in us, I began to think about all the things God empowers us to do.

Holiness is not static, and God has not called us to a stationary life.  Righteousness isn’t always about what you don’t do, it is in doing and being what God created you to be to the fullest.  So when I think about

2 Corinthians 5:10

10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.

I think about what kinds of things we are called to do as His people.

So, inspired by the lives of people recorded in the Bible, as well as scripture that speaks specifically to us, My daughter and I came up with a list of 100 Great things to do in the Body.

So without further ado, and in no particular order, here is our list;
