Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ, we who are many forms one body, and each member belongs to all the others. —Romans 12:4-5

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

One of the key realities of Christianity is belonging. I belong! I belong to God. I belong to Jesus. I belong to Jesus’ body, the Church. I have a place and a purpose in that body. I belong! I am needed! I have a job to do! I belong!!

My Prayer…

Help me, Father, to find where you made me fit into Jesus’ body, the church. Until I know my exact place to serve and use my gifts, I pledge to work in all sorts of ministries so that your Spirit, and not just my preference, will guide me into your place to serve. Thank you for giving me a place not only to belong but also to serve and be a part of Jesus’ bodily presence in the world. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
