One Big Body

So my teeth hurting has really gotten me thinking...I promise I am over complaining about this whole sinus/teeth thing...today when Molly and I were driving I was thinking about how if one part of your body does not work properly, then the rest doesn't either. You either have other parts over compensating for the bum part, or the bum part kinda dies for a while, and then hopefully heals. I was thinking the same about the body of believers...if one of us does not do our part then others over compensate, they get tired, and then nothing gets done. Listen hear...

"In this way we are like the various parts of a human body. Each part gets its meaning from the body as a whole, not the other way around. The body we're talking about is Christ's body of chosen people. Each of us finds our meaning and function as a part of his body. But as a chopped-off finger or cut-off toe we wouldn't amount to much, would we?" Romans 12:4-5

If we don't work together for the same goal, then what are we really doing? One Prayer really helps to emphasis this, together we are answering Jesus' one prayer, that we all are unified. So no matter how small a body part is, ie: baby toe, or how big it is, ie: the head, as long as we all are working towards the same thing, we will function properly.

Here is my main encouragement, you are never too small for God. If he is truly the one your heart desires, then his love and wisdom will overflow into your life. When you do something, anything, no matter how big or small, do it for God, and for his kingdom.

You're absolutely right! No one is too small for God. No trouble in our lives is too insignificant for Him.

Kate,..I loved this post. We all matter to God. Yes, we are members of His body and we should all work together.
