Missing Piece

Romans 12:5-8. ” so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.”

When we work a jig saw puzzle just getting one piece in the wrong place can prevent the entire puzzle from taking shape and showing the picture. The same is true with our churches. When one member is in the wrong ministry instead of the ministry God gifted, that person is in the wrong place and the full picture of the church will be marred. It is so important for each member to know what specific ministry within the church God has equipped them and called them to. No one ministry is more important than any other. All are needed for the individual church to function fully in the community. The question is do we know our church ministry calling and are we fully functioning in it?
