We Need the Whole Body

“…from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love. “- Eph. 4:16

Every member of the Body matters and every joint supplies. There is only one body of Christ and Jesus is the Head. Everyone matters. We do not compete, but complete one another; and we do not compare ourselves with others. We are all gifted because of the greatest gift that lives in us, Jesus Christ, our Lord. By His Spirit, we shine forth His Glory! 

Low self-esteem can cause us to believe we have no gifts at all, while pride can make us think we are more gifted than others. No one is greater than another. To minister means to serve. We are all servants, and we need each other. United, we can do greater works in the name of Jesus. When we disregard one part of the Body, we hinder others, including ourselves. The whole body matters.

We serve and stay faithful wherever we are, in whatever we do, with no complaint. It is all for the glory of God, so it’s never insignificant. Above all, we walk in love: appreciate, encourage, and celebrate one another. We rest in Him and rejoice forevermore. We endeavor to be good stewards of what God places in our hands, from glory to glory!
