PASTORS' DAILY DEVOTIONAL

A Part of His Body

Rod Shimabukuro

Scripture
[18]But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose. (1 Corinthians 12:18)
Observation
Paul describes the body of Christ as One body, comparing the human body with God’s members. There are many parts, varied functions but all have it’s intended purpose for the whole body to function.

So we, as God’s family are varied in gifts, purpose and function, but we are One in Christ.
Application
I was honored to be a part of New Hope’s newest part of the body - New Hope East Shore, led by Pastor Rick Botelho and team! The servants were serving well. A variety of hearts & gifts being used to put a great Grand Opening service together. They served with joy and a heart of Oneness for Christ!

For me, I desire to live differently by remaining humble, realizing that I am a small part of the Body. Sometimes, I think too highly of myself. Other times I think “low” of my service, feeling like I don’t have what it takes to be a pastor.

Today I am graciously reminded that no matter what my part is - I am a part of His Family. My part is vital. It may not be needed - I may be a silent part or even a significant part - but I am a part of JESUS Body!
Prayer
Lord - I really, really want to honor You! Forgive me for thinking too much and too little of myself. May I think as I ought to... thoughts of humility and honor. No matter what I do, I am grateful to be a part of Your Body!
