Every day, we need to go to our quiet place...

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

September 17, A.D. 2002

1 Corinthians 12:12-14,27-31
Psalm 100:1-5
Luke 7:11-17

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

"Now the body is not a single part, but many."

We are one body in Christ Jesus,
Praise the Lord!
We are all parts of the one body,
Praise the Lord!
We all have our duty within the body,
Praise the Lord!

God has generously seen that each person serves a particular and important part in the Body of Christ. He has crafted us with the great Artist's eye so that we may serve the body.

If we are a hand, we should not want to be a foot, if an eye, we should not desire to be an ear. God knows us from beginning to end, from outside to inside. He knows what we can do that no one else can. We are all essential parts, fulfilling a vital role in keeping the Body going.

Praise God in the wisdom of His plan. He loves us so completely, so generously, and as we love him back He perfects us in the body of Christ.

So serve Him faithfully, and you serve the body faithfully. Don't worry about position or role, simply accept what God has given -- it is perfect for you.
