Being In the Right Place 1 Corinthians 12:14-20 Page 1786
Last Week We looked at 12:12-13 to see that we are a unit. Two Illustrations! We looked at how Satan wants to separate us from the strength found in unity. We also looked at how we enter the body universal. The homework involved considering our connections and broadening our circle.
This Week: Do you know why God has put you here and how he wants you to connect? How do you fit in?
The Body and the Church: The body and the church are two of Gods greatest creations and he dwells in each of them.
The Physical Body Full body scan showing layers of the body. This is about 4500 images! This is medical imaging of a real person. Switch to VLC media player. Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVrbPb9- 1xAhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVrbPb9- 1xA
1 Cor 12:14-20 Page 1786 Now the body is not made up of one part but of many. 15 If the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body," it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body. 16 And if the ear should say, "Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body," it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body.
1 Cor 12:14-20 Page 1786 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? 18 But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. 19 If they were all one part, where would the body be? 20 As it is, there are many parts, but one body.
So... Do you know why God has put you here and how he wants you to connect? Why has God brought you here? How do you add to the body? How do you fit in?
Being in the right place. This week consider your fit. Think about how you make the body stronger. Thank those who make you stronger. You are important and God wants you to use your gifts because that is why he gifted you. This is our body – how can you make it healthier?
