You Are A Part Of The Body Of Christ!
"God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as He chose. If all were a single member, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, yet one body. The eye cannot say to the hand, "I have no need of you," nor again the head to the feet, "I have no need of you." On the contrary, the parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and on those parts of the body that we think less honorable we bestow the greater honor, and our unpresentable parts are treated with greater modesty, which our more presentable parts do not require. But God has so composed the body, giving greater honor to the part that lacked it, that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together." 1 Cor.12:18-26 (esv)
Do you know that you are an important part of The Body of Christ?!! As a prat of The Body, you are greatly needed!! Each member of The Body was created by God to accomplish God's Purpose & Plans to reach others for Christ and helping to be disciples through His Word.
Have you ever felt like you don't belong in The Body of Christ, you are not alone as described above by the hands and feet, as this word picture is shared to help communicate the important place that each member of The Body of Christ fulfills. What are some ways that we can help others feel a part of The Body?
In the times we live, there are many ways that people are disconnected. Let's help others connect in at least one way in The Body of Christ as she fulfills her purpose for God's Glory...because You are an important Gifted2Go part of the Body of Christ!!!!
