The picture of a physical body working together for our general health and wellness is relatively easy to understand and appreciate. Many of us also understand when a part of the physical body isn’t working properly that it can take a toll on the body as a whole. May we, as brothers and sisters in Christ, appreciate that we each have a role to play in the health and wellness of the Church – the Body of Christ. May we also, as Christians, take full responsibility for performing the function, within the Body of Christ, that we have been called by Him to perform. In the name of Jesus, the Christ, I pray. Amen.
Verses: Romans 12:4-6 (NIV)
For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us.
