Playing Our Part

I was thinking about Ephesians 4:15 & 16 again this morning and was reminded that GROWTH in Christ’s body, the church, is dependent on each PART doing its work.

15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.  16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.

I was thinking about how the word “part” finds its way into so many other words like “PARTicipate”, “PARTner” and “PARTake” and realised just how essential it is that every one of us is connected and engaged in relationships with the PARTicular goal of building one another up by “speaking the truth in love”.

Dear friends, I’m praying for you all today that you will be genuine participants in this supreme work of God and that our whole church will experience the incredible blessing of growing up into Christ.
