Equipped - 1 Corinthians 12:12-26
This past week I had the wonderful opportunity to go to Equipped, a Christian Business Conference. This canvas was placed where anyone who wanted could add something to it. At the end of the conference it was auctioned off for charity. My part in this were the waves. The artist came in at the end and made it all look so beautiful. It reminded me of this scripture. We each have our part in the body of Christ but God takes each of our parts and makes it beautiful.
As we each left our mark on this painting I realized the importance of leaving our mark in this world. Don't hide the unique gift that God has given you. You are a part of the painting. Your part is important and needed.
1 Corinthians 12:12-26 (NLT)
"The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up one whole body. So it is with the body of Christ. Some of us are Jews, some are Gentiles, some are slaves, and some are free. But we have all been baptized into one body by one Spirit, and we all share the same Spirit."
