“If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body?” (1 Corinthians 12:15-16)
If you’ve been alive for any amount of time, you’ve probably witnessed the strange things people will do to be ‘unique and different’. From hairstyles and color, to clothes and even body art, people want to be noticed for their differences. Because of this attitude that people have, many people will claim that the church leads to nothing but a bunch of the some old thing. Today’s message is to inform you that any church that is living biblically will not be building of uniformity.. God’s house it is not a copying machine.
In fact, God’s Word describes the body of Christ as different people with unique talents and abilities coming together with a single purpose in mind. Just as God created the vast array of flowers that brighten our world, He has created each and every one of us with special gifts that can be used for His glory. What a beautiful picture of unity with diversity. So instead of seeking out differences to hold against each other, let us use our differences in an effort to build God’s Kingdom. As the world looks on and sees us walk in loving unity, they will wonder how, and we can simply say, “Jesus.”
Heavenly Father, Thank You for the special gifts and abilities You have given to me. Father, I pray that You give the “The Church” a heart of unity. Help us to use our differences for Your Kingdom and not to allow the enemy to cause division. May my heart and mind be set on You and the Gospel. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
