Recently I was impressed with God’s picture of the church. 1 Corinthians 12 gives a description of the Body of Christ. We all are gifted and use our gifts as one member in the body. But the great truth is found in the fact of the body. We are many members, gifted to do His work as an organism! We are a living, moving vehicle to accomplish the work of Christ!
In our new little church start, this became so obvious in the past two months. We as a body were able to be in contact with 5 suffering families, raise a sizable amount of money, and distribute the love and gospel of Jesus Christ to them. This was impossible for me to do on my own. This was impossible for any woman in our church to do on her own. This was impossible for any man in our church to do on his own. Yet, when we all were willing instruments of God, He took all of us, and some people not apart of our church, and together we are able to impact five precious hurting families with a powerful gesture of Christ’s love.
Be active in your church family! The whole body is greater than one individual. Through Him we can accomplish great things! Thanks be unto our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
