Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many. 1 Corinthians 12:12-27
In Paul’s Letter, he speaks of our bodies not being just one part, but many parts – hands, feet, eyes, etc. And that there is a need for all of these parts to work in unison, to move and act together, each doing the task they were designed by God to do. So it is with the Body of Christ-the church. We are each brought together with different abilities, skills and talents. But it is important that we leverage all of this in a unified effort – which is the spreading of God’s Word and The Good News of salvation through Christ !
Let us pray please : Eternal and All Giving God – it was through Your great act that the earth, the skies, the mighty waters, and yes all the creatures therein, were created. You also formed us, bringing all parts together to form us, to mold us. We thank you Lord. Help us, Your church, to work and act as one to guide and nurture this struggling world of ours, that we can bring peace, understanding and caring to the forefront. We pray all of this in Your Son’s healing name. Amen.
Yours in Christ , Rollie
