We are fitly joined together.
Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God; and are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone; in whom all the building fitly framed together growth unto a holy temple in the Lord; in whom you also are built together for a habitation of God through the Spirit."
So, WHYOU? Because you matter. You have a particular spot in the body of Christ that is open for you. As Apostle Paul so eloquently states, just as the body is one and has many parts, it is still considered as one body. The body of Christ (which you are a part of) comprises many unique and notable people who have been given a purpose to make the body function. You are necessary, and the body needs you. Philippians 2:13-15 carefully explains that we all have been gifted with a will to do. It is this deep down desire within you to fit into the body. I call it counsel; the world calls it intuition. Whichever you name it, it longs to do the will of the Father.
However, as Paul so poignantly expresses in his letter to the church of Corinth, there should be no schisms in the body, for God has purposely appointed a place for every member and not one is greater than the other. There is order but never favoritism. Therefore, let us fortify the body of Christ, get in your spot, strengthen yourself in your purpose and honor the order in which you have been placed. Each of us are purposely placed, built together for the habitation of God through the Spirit. Be a part of the blessing of God.
Devotional Reading: Philippians 2:13-15, 1Corinthians 12:12-31; Ephesians 2:10 (note: if you have experienced any hurts from the body, I encourage you to read Ephesians 1:18-23.) We love you.
