1 Corinthians 12:14-15
We are all of the body of Christ. We are all one church. It does not matter: Race, Residency, Gender, Age, or anything. If you accept the gospel message and you are a Christian, then you are apart of the body of Christ. I can't make the body of Christ by myself. No, it takes the collection of the believers. It takes our brothers and sisters in the States, Mexico, Guatemala, Canada, Uganda, Cambodia, Jamaica. It takes the believers around the world to make up the body of Christ. Also it doesn’t matter if I’m a foot, or a hand, or just a single leg hair. I just want a spot. In heaven if all I get is the scraps from the table, then I’ll be joyous because at least I have a spot in the glory of God. Also each body part has a different purpose. A hand can’t just move around on it’s own. No it must be attached to the rest of the body. Like Christian said, “We are like the Power Rangers. Sure we are cool by ourselves, but we need to be with one another and connect to one another to defeat the enemy.” This is cool if you really think about it. Apart from the rest of the believers I’m weak. They feed into me, they plug into me. I am made stronger by the challenges they put me up to. It’s all for Jesus, but they are plugging into me. So today, I will try and be closer to my fellow body members. I will not trust in myself to defeat the enemy, but rather rely on the body to help me defeat him. For I am weak by myself, but with Christ and the body, I am stronger.
