“But God composed the body, having given greater honor to that part which lacks it.” I Corinthians 12:24 Every Christian plays an important role in the body of Christ. Paul gave a list of gifts of the Spirit and compared their use to the functioning of the various parts of the human body for the good of the whole. The Corinthian believers may have had different cultural backgrounds, gifts, and personalities, but they were filled with the same Spirit and belonged to the same body of Christ. Paul made special mention of the parts of the body that were weak and obscure, and taught that all believers play a necessary and significant role. No one part was more necessary than any other. Remember, Jesus has given you a significant part to play and will use you to build up His people. As a member of the body of Christ, you are a necessary part of the whole.
