Body Parts of Christ- Working in Church Unity

The church is made up of many parts of the body of Christ. It is when we find the place of working in unity that great things begin to happen.

I am always amazed when I watch the music awards on TV, the artist who is recognized as great always says thank you to the many people who helped them to achieve greatness. God has gifted you with certain abilities but always remember to use them in connection with the body of Christ.


Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.

1Cor 12:12

The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ.

You are important to God and you have a part that fits with others in the functioning of the church. I heard a wise lady recently explain it this way; a box of parts can be together, but useless until they are assembled. She also mentioned that strands of chord are weak when alone but strong when knitted together.

Prayer: God help me to find exactly where I fit in your plan and what part it is that I am in the church body. Help me to work in unity with others by the power of your Spirit.
