12/30/13 Daily Devotion

1 Corinthians 12:27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.

Take a moment, next time you are in church, and look around. Look around on Sunday morning. Look around on Sunday night. Look around on Wednesday night. Look at the people present. Think about those who are missing and consider this: without them, there would be no church. The body of Christ is made up of all kinds of people. They range from newborns to those who have a vast amount of life experiences. What many seem to forget is that simple statement that you read two sentences ago: without them, there would be no church. The kids are too noisy. The adults are too old fashioned. The music is too slow. The music is too fast. They don’t dress right. They dress too formal. Blah, blah, blah, blah. We are the body of Christ, and it’s about time we start acting as such. That begins with loving each and every person who enters His house.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me understand that I am just one part of the body of Christ. Help me see that everyone, child through adult, are necessary for the growth and edification of the body of Christ.
