One Another Devotion - Day 16
We belong to one another
Romans 12:4-5 New International Version 4 For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these do not all have the same function, 5 so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.
The Lord, our God, Almighty Creator of Heaven and Earth, knows the plan He has for each of us and for all of us. We need to trust in His design and not stray from His Word, for His power is divine and it is His power that has brought us together to do God’s work.
God has an important role for each of us even though we may wonder why He would choose us. We are given special gifts that are needed by others. He equips us to handle many situations that we go through, so that we in turn can help others who go through the same or similar situation. As we are joined together, we stand strong and are able to accomplish God’s work for many people - this happens when we work together.
As Christians, we come in many shapes and sizes, but God puts us together so that we fit together like a big puzzle. We should keep our focus on His word and follow His light and not stray from His path. We are like the rooms of a mansion that He has built. Each room is equipped with all of the necessary items to be used for His glory, but each room is different - however, He keeps us all under one roof so that we can work together for His glory.
1. Where in your life have you needed extra help and when you asked God, He provided it through another person? Where have you been able to give help to someone that helped them through a situation?
2. What do you need to change or work on so that it will be easier for you to give or receive help from someone else?
3. Where have you seen the body of Christ working together well?
