6/14/14 Daily Devotion

Ephesians 4:16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.

What happens when each member of the church realizes his potential and lives up to said potential? When we realize and live up our potential, the entire church is blessed. When we live up to our potential, the witness of the church within the community is blessed and fortified. If we do our part, the church is grounded, and its members are built up in the love of Christ–as we each do our part. Can the church function if there are people unwilling to surrender their lives and live up to their potential? Can the witness of the church still be viable in the community if she has members unwilling to live up to their potential? The answer to both questions is, of course, yes; but the effectiveness would be so much greater if all would choose to live up to and serve within their full potential. 

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me see what I can do to make a difference within this world in Your name.
