While working on the cars we depend on for years, one thing became painfully obvious to me. The smallest thing can keep it from functioning. Many times, it came down to a tiny little wire that the owner had never seen and did not understand its importance. A vehicle can look perfect yet not function because of one part not fulfilling its designed purpose.
1Corinthians 12:12 “For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. 18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. 25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.”
God gives the Church body every gifted person we will need to accomplish the work He has given us. The truth is that every person He gives He gifts in some particular way that is important and necessary for completing our mission. Divided we cannot function properly neither will we when some of our “parts” (people) neglect to engage and use their God given gifts within the body.
We the Church Need You!
