We are the Body
By: Sherry Heard
Today in service some of the things that were said sparked a conversation on the way home. If we, as Christ followers, are the body of Christ then why would one organ criticize another? Think of it this way, the Baptists are the hands, the Pentecostals are the lungs, the (insert your favorite group of Christ followers here) are the feet. Now the feet can carry the entire body around. Without the lungs there is no oxygen and the hands do the work. Each is important, each performs a function, each is necessary. If we criticize each other then we become a cancer to the whole body. Support each other, love each other, and embrace our differences. We are all created in His image, but not all created the same. Our God is a God of variety that is why there is so much variety in people and nature. If we were all the same then there would be only lungs, hands or feet. That would be useless; one without the others can not accomplish much. We need each other and we need to work together to accomplish the work that God has for us. I do not want to be a cancer. Just because something is not OK for me does not mean it is not OK for everyone. If God reveals something to me, then that is for me. That is where the personal relationship comes in. We must have that personal, daily relationship. Something that comes from the pulpit is for the people in that service on that day. Something that comes to you individually in your own quiet time with God, now that is for you. Not for everyone. There may be people you wish to share that information with, but that does not mean it is for them unless it rings true in their spirit. I am speaking of believers criticizing other believers. God is great at convicting believers in their own spirit with His still small voice.
