1 Corinthians 12:13-26
13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. 14 For the body is not one member, but many. 15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? 16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? 17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? 18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. 19 And if they were all one member, where were the body? 20 But now are they many members, yet but one body. 21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. 22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary: 23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness. 24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked. 25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. 26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
Heavenly Father, we are the work of your hands and you have made us part of the body of Christ. Help us this day to fulfill our place in the body of Christ. If we were made to be ministers then let us minister, if exhorters, then help us to exhort, if made to praise, then help us praise, if helpers then let us help. We pray that you would cleanse us from our sins and from the stains that prevent us from being the Christian we are called to be. We need your strength to overcome our weakness, we need your wisdom to overcome our doubts and lack of understanding. Help us to be the body of Christ that acts in concert and worships you with all of our hearts, minds and souls. We also pray that you would give us a heart for your people that we would desire to be with them now and forever.
