God Created Me With A Need For Others
In review of Ephesians 4:16 it says, “He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow” (NLT)
He makes everyone fit together. As each does it’s part, it helps the other grow.
What this means to me:
God fits me together where he wants me. As such I use my gifts to do work and help others grow.
God provides guidance for me, so that I’m no longer immature like a child, being tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. This way I’ll not be influenced when people try to trick me with lies so clever that sound like the truth. Instead, I will learn to speak the truth in love, grow in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church. He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.
My oneness in Christ does not destroy my individuality. The Holy Spirit has given each Christian special gifts for building up the church. It is crucial that I use them. Look for opportunities to serve.
Myself along with my church have been given an enormous responsibility, to make disciples in every nation. Left on my own, I may end up giving up without trying, however as a member of his body, its possible. Together we can obey God more fully than I can alone. Working together as a church, we can express the fullness of Christ.
So, the most important things I need to learn in life require that I be in relationship with other people. I can’t do it on my own. If I want to build your potential, I must learn from others.
Ephesians 4:16 says, “He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow” (NLT).
In short, I need the people God has placed in my life. And they need me! God wired all of us to need each other and to learn from each other so that we become the people God created us to be.
