In 1 Corinthians 12, Paul gives us this picture of the church as being like a human body--- and how all of the people who make up the church have unique gifts, skills, and abilities that can help the church do what it’s meant to do, just like how all of the parts in our bodies work together in unison.
-when we’re missing parts, we’re not at our healthiest or strongest.
-What does God want you to do? How does he want you to be involved in the life and health of the church? Do you have a real sense of purpose and fulfillment--where you feel that you’re doing the things that God wants you do?
-Instead of being tiring, those kinds of things can be life-giving and rejuvenating.
-When each one of us is an active part of the Body of Christ, we’ll be healthier and will be there to support and strengthen each other
