Live Light in 25 Words- Day 15. " Head...Toe....It doesn't matter! "
" Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it " 1Corinthians 12:27 Q. You are part of the same body as your Christian brothers and sisters; how can you better work together with them? When ever people get together, there is the inevitable clash of personality, the differing of belief, the tousle for position and competitiveness . Unfortunately the Church body is often prone to the same issues. So how then can we better work together? There is no need to compete with one another as God has uniquely gifted each one of us. He has placed in our hand, something that is in no others. There is a place prepared for each and every one of us and our position is assured. God reveals understanding to each of us in His own timing, as we are able to comprehend. Those closest to Jesus did not always see eye to eye. But He admonishes us to be forgiving, patient and tolerant of one another and our differences. Because it is these same differences when brought together as a whole, complimenting one another, that allow the body to function in its full capacity. I need to be diligent with what is gifted to me, to not allow pride to creep in, and to find my strength , worth and confidence in Him, not in what I can do or the importance that others may wish to place on me. We are all special and important in Gods Kingdom. "The first shall be last, and the last shall be first" Lxx
