GOD SET YOU IN THE CHURCH 2

“And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.”

1 Corinthians 12:28 (KJV)

In the Church (or the Body of Christ), God has designed each member or part of the body with a unique function.

There is no unwanted part of the body of Christ according to God’s setup or creative design.

Just as there is no unwanted part in the human body.

It doesn’t matter your ethnicity, race, or background; when you became born again, you were spontaneously baptized into the one body of Christ.

“For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free—and have all been made to drink into one Spirit.” 1 Corinthians 12:13 (NKJV)

The body of Christ, which is the Church is spiritual and universal. It is also the aggregation of all the saints. (As we have seen previously, that it takes the whole body parts or members of the body, to make one whole body).

All the saints together are the universal Church. And the universal Church finds expression through the Churches within a locality.

As a born again in Christ, you are a member with a special function or assignment in the body of Christ.

The relevance of your special function in the body is seen through your “local Church“.

It is God who sets you in the Church with that special grace for your relevance in His Kingdom.

“And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.” 1 Corinthians 12:28 (KJV)

Whatever gift or ability God has given you is for the benefit of the Body of Christ, through the assembly He has placed you.

You don’t have to think you are in the Church by mistake. He placed you in a unique assembly for the growth of the entire body. You are positioned in that specific place in the Body for you to be useful as God has intended.

There is a reason God did not place the toes on the shoulders. How will the toes on the shoulder be useful to the body?

God placed each unique part of the body at its right place for effective use and relevance.

God has set you up in your “Local Church” or within a unique “Ministry Assembly” for your effective function.

All that God has made you and given you, are for His use within the Church.

There are some God made them to be apostles or prophets or teachers in the Church. Others are also set up by the Lord to be helpers, administrators, and gift of healings.

These are expressions of graces, and must be for the glory of God.

“For everything comes from God and exists by His power and is intended for his glory…” Romans 11:36 (NLT).

The whole body depends on that gift or grace given  to you to function effectively.

Don’t complain and be tired about the needs which gravitate towards you. You are set up in the body at such a time to be an answer to those needs.

It is by God’s design you always have the desire to HELP. You are an answer to the financial needs of the Church. Keep giving!

Your special grace for administration is to create an organized systems for the growth of the Church. Be diligent with it.

God did not set everyone in the Church to be an apostle or prophet or special teacher (though everyone must teach, every teacher needs one with a special teaching grace).

You are in the body of Christ at such a time as this, to serve through your “local Church” or “Ministry Assembly“. Your various service or unique function contributes to the growth and expansion of the Kingdom of God.

Don’t get tired nor stop. You are at the right place at the right time.

Use all that God has given you for His glory.

Hallelujah.

DIG DEEPER:
(1 Corinthians 12:12-30; Romans 12:3-8; 1 Peter 4:10-11; 1 Timothy 4:12-14; Colossians 3:17)

WE PRAY:
That we will walk in the revelation and consciousness of the gift or grace given to us  in other to function effectively in the local church He has placed us into.

BIBLE READING:
Day 227
Proverbs 25 – 28
Acts 3 – 4

– I am an effective member of the body of Christ.
 
– I have a unique function and a special assignment in the body.
 
– I am a nourishment to the entire body.
 
– I have been set in the church, therefore I take advantage of my place to be a blessing to many. 
 
Oh Hallelujah!! Glory to God!!!
