One Body, Many Parts

GEPC is made up of many parts. Each and everyone of us plays a role in the church. 1 Corinthians 12-31 tells us that each and everyone is blessed with a gift to serve the church. Be it helpers, drivers, encouragers, those who handles song sheets, food, worship, PA...we are all special. To God, no matter big or small the part we play, we all are of EQUAL IMPORTANCE.

Verse 15 says " If the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to that body. If the ear should say "Because I am not the eye, I do not belong to the body"...and God does not want us to think it this way. Because in verse 17 it says " If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be?" God gave us different functions to work in harmony with one another.

The church is like a puzzle. A puzzle contains puzzle pieces of different sizes: some may be big, some may be small. Every pieces are required to fit to make a COMPLETE picture. Thus if any piece went missing, then the picture will not be complete afterall, and i dun think that anybody wants to hang the picture puzzle on the wall, eventhough one teeny weeny puzzle is missing! See how important that small size puzzle is?? Each and everyone makes a difference in the church, eventhough we may just be the one preparing refreshments or just a guitarist or a usherer or anything la...

What matters more to GOD is our hearts! He does not look at the outward appearances or what we can do. As long as we put our heart into doing it in the Name of the LORD, for "the LORD searches the heart...." 1 Chronicles 28:9.

P.S: GOD watches every small deeds even if others may not notice it.

Romans 12:4-8 tells us bout the same thing. So if you got time, do read it.
