What Part of the Body of Christ Am I? By Denise Rox
The following is an excerpt from The Royal Cross . . .
. . . Following Christ can be full of exciting adventures. Opening your heart to the Holy Spirit and discovering your gift is a way to step outside yourself and extend Christ’s hand to others. We all have a part to do and one is not more important than another. What gift do you think the Holy Spirit has bestowed on you? Is it caregiving, listening to others, or maybe physical work done for others? The gifts are endless and all of them are important.
1 Corinthians 12:12 For just as the body is one and many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.
We each have a purpose, and working together is how we become one body. I went to Honduras with others who had gifts and together, as one body, we accomplished Christ’s work.
Today you have a special gift and tomorrow it might change. That is how the Holy Spirit works. He comes into our hearts dropping off certain gifts to equip us for the good works we are called to do. Sometimes I want to say “No, no not that gift,” but it doesn’t work that way. Give in to Christ calling you because He calls for a special reason.. The adventures will be amazing!
Please pray with me. “Holy Spirit, I call on you to come into my heart Use me to be part of the body of Christ. May the gift I am given grow in my heart to give glory to God. I pray this in His Holy name.” And all the people said AMEN. Let it by, amen.
