“For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function.”

Romans 12:4

Our body has different parts but they don’t all do the same thing. Arms and legs don’t have the same function. So are we in Christ, we are one body but each Christian has his/her own function or gift; we all do different things.

We do different things but for the same reason i.e. to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ. Arms and legs don’t do the same thing but they work together for the same goal and complement each other and make each other better.

All the members of the body should care for each other and love one another deeply. When one member of the body suffers, we all suffer. (“An injury to one is an injury to all”). We are joined together in the body by God the Holy Spirit who has given to each one of us at least one gift for the common good of all (“Unity is strength”) and for the extension of God’s kingdom. Though our functions and responsibilities in the church may differ (leadership, music, teaching, etc.), no one is greater or more important than the other for we are all one and equal in Christ. Let’s start believing in each other, respect each other function and encourage each other gift.
