As we look back on our lives as followers of Jesus we can see not only did He do it all, so we have no place to boast, but also it was all for Him.
“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.” (Romans 12 v 4-5)
I am unable to purposely leave the community of Christ and keep connected to Christ.
I am unable to view life and make decisions accurately through my perspective only.
I am unable to claim any entitlement for I am not the body but part of.
I am here by design with my own uniqueness and a worthy individual contribution without individualistic desire.
I am responsible for the care of others, their value and for their voice to be heard.
I am privileged for I have access to the whole body.
It is all for Him. Yet the benefits are many.
