WHERE PROMINENCE DOESN’T REALLY INDICATE USEFULNESS !

The Scriptures reveal that Christians differ so greatly from each other that it likens them to totally different bodily organs. Some of us are like eyes – spiritually perceptive but delicate and useless for carrying anything. Some are like arms – strong and useful but can sense very little.

Being destined to fulfill different roles in the body of Christ means that some people will be more spiritually perceptive than others, not because God is moving more powerfully in their lives, and certainly not because they are more loved of God, but simply because they are called to perform a different function in the body than other parts.

Just as everyone sees your fingernails and no one sees your kidneys, some parts of Christ’s body will, of necessity, be more noticed than others. Again, this is solely because of their function. Prominence in the body does not in the slightest way mean prominence in the heart of God. In fact, as Scripture points out, God has ordained that those parts of the body that get all the attention – such as our hair – are actually less important than parts that no one sees .

Its high time we gain the right perspective about our service and roles in the body of Christ ! Don’t wait to be shocked by the heavenly perspective as many of us will when the time comes.

Serve your purpose in the body with honor and dignity. Value other parts. Pursue unity and not competition.


1 Cor 12: 22- 26

On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable,
and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor.

And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty, while our presentable parts need no special treatment.

But God has put the body together, giving greater honor to the parts that lacked it, so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other.

If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.


Blessed Day!
