SAVED TO SERVE                                                                   1 Corinthians 12:12-31

“Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.” (v27)

When it comes to finding and fulfilling your role in God’s kingdom, notice 3 things (1) Every believer has a ministry. Less than 10 percent of Christians are involved in many form of service. They go to church “for what they can get out of it.” Service in Christ’s body isn’t optional. In God’s army there are no volunteers – He’s drafted us all into service. (2) Every ministry is important. There are no insignificant ministries. Listen: “God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be… The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” (1 Corinthians 12:18-21 NIV) (3) We are dependent on each other. No single ministry can accomplish all we’ve been called to do. Like a jigsaw puzzle, each piece is required to complete the picture. You always notice the missing piece first, right? When one part of your body malfunctions, the other parts don’t work as well. Our preoccupation with individualism must be replaced with the biblical truth that we need each other, that we’ve been called to work together. That doesn’t mean you  should try to be like somebody else; what God make you to be, determines what He intends for you to do. Your ministry is determined by your make up. When your gifts don’t match the role you play, you feel like a square peg in a round hole. Not only does this produce poor results, it’s also a waste of your talents, time and energy. So find your place, then make up your mind to excel in it. (TWFT)
