TITLE: PLAY YOUR PART
AUTHORED BY PASTOR CHARLES AND FAVOUR CHUKWUEMEZIE
EPHESIANS 4:16 “From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.”
We happened to be so blessed to be the body of Christ. Not everyone can be said to be the body of Christ. You become the body of Christ the moment you get into Christ. How do you get into Christ?
You are in Him when you acknowledge His death and resurrection, repent of your sins and declare Him Lord over your life.
That moment, you are the body of Christ-The Church.
In Him, we are joined and held together. Like any normal body system, we grow and are built as each part of the body does it’s work.
The normal body is said to be sick when one part is hurting. Why should that be? It is so because, as the back aches, the other parts are affected.
So it is in Church, you have a part to play. You should supply something to the body. Immediately you fit into the body, an assignment was created for you to do.
Child of God, refuse to be dormant in Church. Refuse to be the headache in Church. Refuse to be the one causing confusion in Church. Refuse to be the one causing others to be spiritually sick in Church. Refuse to sow seeds of discord.
All of these that has been mentioned is not what Christ wants you to supply.
Supply strength; pray for your pastor and the Church. Use your gifts to edify the Church. Show care for people in Church, not waiting to receive care. Stop being selfish, be a blessing to the body of Christ.
PRAYER AND DECLARATION
LORD JESUS, I PLEDGE TO DO WHAT IS EXPECTED OF ME FOR THE BODY TO GROW AND BE BUILT ON A DAILY BASIS. I BELIEVE YOUR GRACE WILL SEE ME THROUGH. ..AMEN
WORDS ON MARBLE
UNTIL YOU SUPPLY YOUR OWN PART, YOU TOO CANNOT GROW… CHARLES CHUKWUEMEZIE
