In the first two parts of this series, I shared my testimony of learning how to find my place in the body of Christ. Now let’s look at our reality.
The fact is, you and I are bound together in holy ministry. Our primary purpose is to function as the body of Christ, every breath of our lives. It is who we are and it is what we do. Everything else is details, and as they say, “the devil’s in the details.” It is no coincidence that “in the details” is where we misplace our focus, our purpose and our worth.
So, how does being a “body part” play out in real life? God’s work in each individual is unique and far too big for a flowchart, but, here is the first of 10 steps to help you discover what you can do to make a difference. I encourage you to consider each step as it comes and give it a try for a week or so. Invite God to do big things!
- Give up. We strive to make life secure and livable for ourselves, but we end up drained and frustrated. Surrender it all to God – every moment of it. Immerse yourself in God’s word, and the big and small things God blesses you with. Trust God to guide you to His priorities for you.
