We are better together!

As I sit still tonight and reflect on the friends and ministry team members the Lord has brought my way, I’m amazed at the variety of gifts, talents, and personalities He has created.

Writing, speaking, researching, sewing, assembling, decorating, praying, encouraging, and more. None of them more important than the other, but all a valuable contribution. And all precious to me, for truly He has shown me I can’t do it alone. We are better together!

I think about the disciples Jesus chose to walk along side and do ministry with Him. They also came with different skill sets and trades.

We don’t hear much about them using those skills once they started their ministry with Jesus, but I would imagine that they still did. Some were probably relied on for their fishing abilities, others for their prowess with money, etc.

It just reminds me how there is no need for comparison. God has gifted each of us uniquely for a reason, and that just like the various parts of the physical body, our gifts complement each others’.

“The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up one whole body. So it is with the body of Christ.” (1 Corinthians 12:12)

“All of you together are Christ’s body, and each of you is a part of it.” (1 Corinthians 12:27)

“Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other. In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well.” (Romans 12:4-6)

While we are each unique, truly, we are better together!
