Author requests article critique
We, in Christ, are not individually a finger, toe or even a solitary hair in the Body of Christ, but more a single cell. By faith and grace we are (re)born into a life of service for which this particular cell was created, in conjunction with all the other cells of His Body, to keep the Body alive and thriving so as to present 'God with us - Emmanuel' to all of the world dying for lack of Him. We must, therefore, focus on our specific job, made known to us by the Creator Himself, remembering nothing in its entirety depends on us individually, but collectively working in unison we may lift up Christ in glory and fulfill His command to "go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit" - remembering His promise that in doing so, He will be with us the whole way even until the end of the age.
A cell, attempting to serve the Body in a way unintended, is unhealthy and becomes the source of disease. When disease lurks anywhere in the Body, the whole Body is affected and rendered ineffective at some level hindering its ultimate purpose in Life. To prevent disease, we would all do well to put on our tunnel vision glasses in order to get our eyes off the world and instead allow our entire line of vision be consumed with Christ, His Body and our service to it in keeping it alive and thriving. If we do that, as they say, the rest will take care of itself for the results are in the Hands of God to work all things together for His good and perfect purposes.
Remember, too, that although each cell has an appointed time of service to the Body, when its time has ended and it is forever absorbed back into the Body, a new 'disciple' cell is called into service to take over and the Body lives on!

For over two thousand years the Body of Christ has functioned as God intended. Spiritual lessons surround us and grow within us. Thank for sharing this thought provoking piece. Love you ...((HUGS)) Julie
