".....the body has many different parts, not just one part. If the foot says, “I am not a part of the body because I am not a hand,” that does not make it any less a part of the body. And if the ear says, “I am not part of the body because I am not an eye,” would that make it any less a part of the body? If the whole body were an eye, how would you hear? Or if your whole body were an ear, how would you smell anything?
But our bodies have many parts, and God has put each part just where he wants it. How strange a body would be if it had only one part! "
It's sad that Christians get upset, perturbed, bothered, ruffled when their fellow Christian brothers and sisters in Christ speak out about the death of babies, or ANY injustice in the eyes of the Lord God. 💞Every man and woman who is apart of the body of Christ has been given a PASSION and a PURPOSE. Each one is an equal part of the body. The HANDS cannot be the ARMS and the FEET cannot attempt to do what the EYES can do. In the same way, the passion or gifting that one has, along with their purpose will cause them to speak out or to be more vocal about a thing, an injustice or issue in the earth...according to HOW GOD HAS MADE THEM...crafted them...created them... You won't do what she does...the way she does. He can't stand for the injustice that you stand for and be as effective as you will be if it is not his calling to do so. She cannot be the voice, the prophet, pastor, teacher that he can be if God didn't put that inside of her.
_______________________________________________🔥 What one speaks on or does and what another speaks on or does.. is because that is their "make up"...the WAY GOD MADE THEM. I can't HATE YOU OR BE BOTHERED BY YOU because you don't have a passion for what I have... and you can't hate me because I don't have a passion for what you have. 🤨We are all active parts of the body. If we each do what God stirs in us...and APPRECIATE that the other is calling out a Godly injustice, THIS IS THE WILL OF THE LORD. ______________________________________________🔥 Instead, we move in #flesh and attempt to shut people down who we know in our heart of hearts is calling out an injustice... all because, perhaps THEY DIDN'T WORD IT like you would have liked, or I would have liked. Move the fluff out of the way, and let's fight the enemy together. The real enemy. It's not you. It's not me. 💞
Romans 12:4-10 King James Version (KJV) For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness. Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;
1 Corinthians 12:12-27-- THE BODY OF CHRIST🔥 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,[a] 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.[b]
Yes, the body has many different parts, not just one part. If the foot says, “I am not a part of the body because I am not a hand,” that does not make it any less a part of the body. And if the ear says, “I am not part of the body because I am not an eye,” would that make it any less a part of the body? If the whole body were an eye, how would you hear? Or if your whole body were an ear, how would you smell anything?
But our bodies have many parts, and God has put each part just where he wants it. How strange a body would be if it had only one part! Yes, there are many parts, but only one body. The eye can never say to the hand, “I don’t need you.” The head can’t say to the feet, “I don’t need you.”
In fact, some parts of the body that seem weakest and least important are actually the most necessary. And the parts we regard as less honorable are those we clothe with the greatest care. So we carefully protect those parts that should not be seen, while the more honorable parts do not require this special care. So God has put the body together such that extra honor and care are given to those parts that have less dignity. This makes for harmony among the members so that all the members care for each other. If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it, and if one part is honored, all the parts are glad.
All of you together are Christ’s body, and each of you is a part of it.
