Giving My Life for Something

In summary of Romans 12:5 it says, “In the same way, even though we are many individuals, Christ makes us one body and individuals who are connected to each other.”

Bottom Line:
So we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.

What this means to me:
This verse reminds me that, as I follow Christ, he makes me part of his body.  Within this body I am connected to others of like mind for his purpose.  In life we all give our lives for something. For some it be a career, sports, hobby, fame, or wealth.  In God’s view, none of these pursuits will have a lasting significance.  What scripture teaches me, is that my serving is the pathway to real significance.  As I serve together in God’s family, my life will take on an eternal importance.  God wants to use me to make a difference in his world.  He wants to do his work through me.  So, what ultimately matters is not how long my life is, but rather how I give or donate it.  Scripture is filled with examples of ordinary people God used to make a difference. In summary, God will use me if I’m willing to give my life in his service.
