We Are One Body

1st Corinthians 12:12-20

Recently I broke my toe and realize how much I depend on it. My other parts are useful and just as important. However, I can’t walk on my hands or stand on my nose. It’s up to this tiny toe to help carry my weight. When one part isn’t functioning properly or is broken, the other parts suffer as well. I manage the best I can but it is still difficult.

How similar are we to the body of Christ. In Corinthians Paul speaks to the church of Corinth about human anatomy, comparing it to the family of God with its many members. He illustrates how we are united as believers and stresses how we have a responsibility to each other in Christ. We are not made up of solely one part but numerous partners.

Often, even as Christians, we may feel insignificant or on the other hand prideful. However, one member is not more important than the other. We are family. Each of us has a gift and talent, weaknesses and strong points. Because of Christ we are now one body, one family, His church, all precious to the Lord.

“The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many they form one body. So it is with Christ.” 1st Corinthians 12:12

“Dear Lord let us learn how valuable each of us is to You so we may work together as one.” In Jesus name, Amen.”



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

This is an excellent devotional. I love the analogy of the part of the body and the church, as well as the touch of humor you added.

A great word, Janice! And a necessary reminder that we all have a role to play in this world. None is more important or more insignificant than another. Thanks for posting.
