We belong together // 10-08-21

We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other. In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well.โ€ Romans 12:5-6 NLT

God doesnโ€™t give us different gifts to keep to ourselves but to be used for the benefit of everyone else, they are not exercised in isolation but in community. Is it any wonder that our spiritual enemy does all he can to separate and isolate and disconnect, or make us think that our part isn’t that important, because he knows it can make us individually weaker, and the whole body (the Church) weaker too! We need each other, we need the gifts that each individual brings. So whether you are part of the respiratory system, the reproductive system, the circulatory system, or a hand, foot, an ear, a mouth, or even an eyelash, a nose hair or a little toe, every bit plays itโ€™s part to keep the body functioning as it should, so that it can speak and move and act to have a good news impact on the world around it. We need to be fit together to be fit for His purpose! Lord, show me my part to play and help me to play it well, to find my fit and to take care of the other parts too. Amen ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜Š
