The Body

I pulled a back muscle the other day. Ouch! Since then the rest of my body has been taking care of the injured part.

1 Corinthians 12:14
For the body is not one member, but many.

In the picture, a little hard to tell, but it is a mass of black birds. And while they are individuals, they fly as one body. 

1 Corinthians 12:18
But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.

The body of Christ, made up of believers of all nations, sizes, and ages. And like our physical body, when one is hurt, we all hurt. When one is blessed, we are all blessed.

So care for one another. Encourage one another. Bless one another. 

Matt 25:45 ...  Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

Look at your brothers and sisters as well placed parts of the body. Set in place as it pleases God. Take care of one another. Serve one another. Help the body of Christ be all God designed it to be. Do your part, taking care not to covet the part another plays or mock the lowly part of another.

God is Good!

  1. I love the way the Lord describes us as His body with each part having a specific job and supporting the other parts. What a beautiful picture!
