Romans 12:4 “Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.”

Paul uses here the illustration of our physical body and the Body of Christ – the Church – to show how through Jesus, we the Church Body are joined together, grow together, are held together, and are built up together. (Ephesians 4:16) I saw this on vivid display this morning as the ladies of our Church came together to study the Word. Just as our bodies are made up of not one part but of many…when the Body of Believers come together God can use each person’s gifts, talents, and passions to edify, encourage, exhort, and expound on the attributes of Jesus. What a joy it was to be part of… listening to the wisdom and sage advice from those whose walk with the Lord has been a rich, deep, and abiding journey.
