As you may read of the passage of scripture
that speaks of the body of Christ having many members. 1 Cor.6:15, 1 Cor.12:12, Eph. 5:30 are some scriptures that you may
want to read about this subject.
When one thinks of the body as a working
unit I think many think on the head, such as eyes, ears, mouth, also the hands, and the feet.
Let’s see what other parts we can
learn a little about today. I want to talk about this for a bit.
Now we are going to talk of parts that
are some of the main parts yet not really mention very much. I know this may seem kind a strange to talk about but I am doing
this to make a point
The shoulders of the body is not really
noticed very much yet it is a vital part of the functioning body without the shoulders no arms would move and the hands would
be helpless of course you have heard the saying, large or broad shoulders to carry a lot.
The back is something not very many think
about in the spirit and what would the back represent in the body of Christ? Well start with the saying, having a back bone,
meaning able to work and able to be bold as well. Without a strong back the rest of the body does not function well.
I also look at the shoulders and the back
as being the main support of the body. It is a must to have support. Without the support then what good would the rest be
We could carry on here but I think most
of you are getting the message. That it takes the complete body to be a working functioning unit.
The body or the church has many members
and all are important and with out it all working together then there will be a hindrance.
We all have a vital part in the working
unit of the church or body of Christ and each one is as important as the other and no one part works some not at all without
the rest of the body. I f you think one part is more important the answer is no. It takes us all working in order for the
church to move together.
So what if the part you have is not noticed
or paid much attention too as far as the outward apperance. Just let that part stop functioning and just see what happens
to the rest of the body.
Each part of this natural body has been
made in the image of God and each part of the spiritual body has been designed by God. What a wonderful thought to know we
are His creation and He has created each part to work well together. Most importantly It is going to take having the heart
centered towards the God in order to be used in the body.
Know that the spirit of the Lord causes
us to move and have our being. Read Acts talks of this.
Praise God for being a part of the body
of Christ and do the work that God has given you to do just because He loves you and you love Him.
Let us focus on the Lord and doing His
work let us focus on the salvation of the lost sols and the healing Focus on finding out what part you are and how God can
use you in His body.
