MY BLENDED FAMILY
It is time to look up and out and see the universal church of every tribe, tongue and nationality. The way you do things is not the only way. I am uniting My body, knitting each part together. There is no division in My body. There is no part of My body that is superior to another, for each part is necessary. This is true in the natural and it is true in the spiritual. For even if you do not understand what a part of your body does, that does not negate its importance.
For just as in your local body, you have different gifts, this is also true in the church at large. You need each other. There are those around the world that are interceding for you even now. And you are touching a need in another land through your giving of finances. Other parts may be the hands and feet. And still others the eyes and ears. How can you possibly think that you do not need each other?
You are intricately woven together making a beautiful tapestry. One part may look rather plain, while another looks more spectacular; but all parts are equally important for the complete picture to be expressed. Realize then that the body of Christ is made up of many streams, but they all flow from My heart of love.
Galatians 3:26-29 Living Bible (TLB)
26 For now we are all children of God through faith in Jesus Christ, 27 and we who have been baptized into union with Christ are enveloped by him. 28 We are no longer Jews or Greeks or slaves or free men or even merely men or women, but we are all the same—we are Christians; we are one in Christ Jesus. 29 And now that we are Christ’s we are the true descendants of Abraham, and all of God’s promises to him belong to us.
1 Corinthians 12:12 Living Bible (TLB)
Our bodies have many parts, but the many parts make up only one body when they are all put together. So it is with the “body” of Christ.
