God’s Hope for Your Heart from 1 Corinthians 12
THERE’S A PLACE FOR YOU IN GOD’S FAMILY
The eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you,” nor again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” On the contrary, the parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and on those parts of the body that we think less honorable we bestow the greater honor… (1 Corinthians 12:21-23a)
The world looks for superstars and high-performance people, but the Church is not supposed to be like that.
The world elevates the talented and marginalizes the average, but the Church is not supposed to be like that.
The Church is a place for broken people to be made whole. The Church is a place for hurting people to be healed. In fact, the Church is a place that is not a place at all.
It’s a people you belong to, a family in which everybody has a part to play.
So, no matter what your background is, no matter what abilities you may or may not have and no matter how many times you’ve seen “church people” fail to live this out, may you be encouraged by the hope of this truth: there’s a place for you in God’s family.
