1 Corinthians 12:20
But now indeed there are many members, yet one body.
The body has always fascinated me. I am amazed at the complexity of the human body. Each cell doing its part to work together with every other cell to the benefit of the whole.
Each organ is important but not so important the body could exist with just that one organ.
The brain runs the entire operation but could not exist if the other organs did not support it. Likewise, the brain also supports the other organs, which is beneficial for its own function.
Paul uses examples of hands, ears, and eyes to get the point across.
Each of us are members of the body of Christ.
We support the functioning of each other in our own unique ways.
Not everyone plays an instrument.
Not everyone teaches Sunday school.
Not everyone is a deacon or elder.
Not everyone cooks or cleans.
Not everyone preaches.
What a mess if everyone preached and not one cleaned.
Each member is important.
Be your part and do your part.
