One Christ, One Body – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional October 3rd



(You’re A Vital Member Of The Body Of Christ)

TO THE BIBLE: 1 Corinthians 12:27
“Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.”

The Church is the Body of Christ, and Jesus is the head of the Body. Jesus and the Church together form one body, called Christ, and we are members of this Body.

The Living Bible translation of our opening verse helps us understand it a little more. It says, “Now here is what I am trying to say: All of you together are the one body of Christ, and each one of you is a separate and necessary part of it.”

That means you are needed in the Body of Christ; you are a necessary contributor to the proper growth and edification of the Church.

The Bible says, “…The whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love” (Ephesians 4:16).

The Body of Christ advances and makes progress according to the individual contributions of every Christian. This is so important.

It’s like the physical parts of the human body and their respective functions. Your liver, legs, kidneys, lungs, heart, thumb, etc., all have their distinct functions. They all work together to ensure that your body functions well. Each part is vital for the overall well-being of the body.

If anything goes wrong in any part of your body, it impacts the whole body. This is also true for the spiritual Body of Christ.

See yourself as a vital member of the Body of Christ, and make your impact felt. Pray as the Bible says. Win souls. Walk in humility, faith, hope, and love. Produce fruits of righteousness.

Don’t cause the Body to relapse through such things as bitterness, pride, envy, and inactivity.

Be passionate in spirit and serve the Lord. Walk in righteousness and in the fullness of the Spirit every day. Praise God!

I’m a vital and effective member of the Body of Christ. I walk in righteousness and in the power, glory, and grace that flows from the Head, Christ Jesus, through the entire Body.
