Flowing Together

Exodus 39:42 42 The Israelites had done all the work just as the Lord had commanded Moses. (NIV)

The last few chapters of Exodus go into detail on the various pieces of the tabernacle and the clothing for the priest, how they should be made and how they should go together.  Very interesting reading.  God gifted various people with the gifts necessary to fashion the different parts of the tabernacle, furnishings and etc.   What it show us is how the various ministries of the Body of Christ, the Universal Christian Church, should be going together.  Each person within the Body of Christ has a ministry.  God is very specific about each ministry and, through His Holy Spirit and His written word (the Holy Bible), He gives each person instructions.  As we come together in our various buildings our ministries are to come together in unity.  Because of the numbers of us, we have some who have been raise up to coordinate our ministries and fit them together.  No ministry is more important or more needed than any other.  As with the pieces of the tabernacle, each has an important part to play in the Kingdom of God.  Our job is not to be possessive about what we consider to be “our” ministry, but to flow in unity with all other believers and allow the Holy Spirit to unify the results of our various ministries to bring glory to God and to increase and fortify His Kingdom.  Let is not only do our part but also allow our part to work within the whole.
