Ephesians 4:16 says God makes parts of the whole body of Christ to fit together perfectly like eyes, nose, mouth, ears, hands, feet, fit the body. Each works to help other parts function better as part of the whole body. The Body of Christ is compared to these physical body parts working in unison to perform assigned role. Enables the body to coordinate to support each other. God creates two eyes to see twice by faith to see through eyes of faith. God’s plan and desire uses two ears to hear twice to discern facts more than speak. Each part of the body works by Holy Spirit in 1 Corinthians 12 :1-26. The Bible says gifts of Holy Spirit given to brothers and sisters to inform by word of God. It is important to know roles of apostles, arch/bishops, clerics, ministers, parsons, pastors, priests, captains, chaplains, general overseers, pope, superintendents, evangelists, lay preachers, catechists, hospitality these wo/men use eyes to see visions of God. Ears hear the voice of God, nose smells a sweet aroma fragrance of Christ Jesus, a mouth speaks true prophetic words of God does not return void accomplishes victory. Their hands bless as feet springs into action on behalf of God’s Gospel message. Take time to train to be aware of strengths, gifts, enables their best use of God’s talents or abilities. Appropriate use of talents ensures competence and efficiency. God puts each role in place to follow a management of God’s Business. The eyes, nose, mouth has correct roles by wisdom, humility, discernment used at times one seems better than others if aware. Perspectives of each depends on willingness to obey God’s Gospel plans and recognises their work is unto LORD God’s Glory not for the praise of people. Some roles are not quite what one feels is within a calling but each little helps as drops of water makes a mighty ocean no matter how small each contributes to bigger picture of God’s Kingdom. Accept an assigned role to please God to do HIS WORK in Christ. Since the foundation of earth God’s chosen ones yield to God by the Holy Spirit. If eyes insists on doing a work of mouth, ears, hands, feet causes chaos and confusion. This is due to the fact an original role is neglected to take on another’s role not qualified, entitled to perform. So new role is not done well because God never intended that work for them in the first place. Their original plan of God to devote time to the LORD God Almighty alone instead strays into other directions by their envious jealous distractions. Verse 2 says know pagans are influenced and led astray to follow mute idols. 3 Their functions misplaced in wrong places out of tune with God. So God wants you to speak by the Spirit of God that Jesus is Lord by the power of the Holy Spirit living inside believers.4. The different gifts are from the same Holy Spirit given 5 for different kinds of duties from the LORD God Yahweh. 6 So the different gifts work in everyone for the same God. Each one manifests their gift by the Holy Spirit for common good. 8 To one is given Spirit of wisdom and another knowledge from same Spirit. To another faith by Spirit or gifts of healing by Holy Spirit. To others miracle powers or gift of prophecy to discern spirits and others speak in tongues, interprete the tongues. All work by Holy Spirit as God decides so displacement of any part to other functions causes discord, division, disunity, confusion, misunderstanding.
Unity & Diversity in Christ Body
12 The bodys many parts form one body in Christ. 13 All baptized by one Spirit in one body so Jews, Gentiles, slave or free given one Spirit to drink a communion Blood of Yeshua Messiah. Through His eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God to clean conscience from dead works to serve living LORD God in Hebrews 9:14. Word of God says all the people in Messiah are free indeed and so there is no condemnation for those in Yeshua Messiah who don’t walk in flesh in Romans 8:1. 14 The body is not made of one part only but of many. 15 If a foot says, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body its not a good reason to stop being part of the body. 16 And if ears say, “Because I am not eye, I do not belong to the body,” its not good to stop being part of the body. 17 If whole body is eyes, where is sense of hearing? If the whole body ears how will sense of smell be? 18 God put parts of body together as HE wants them to be. 19 If only one part takes over what will others do? Each is part of the whole body in Christ Jesus.21 The eyes cannot say to the hands, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!”22 So the weak body part is indispensable if less honourable needs help treat parts modestly. 24 The presentable part need no special treatment for God puts body together to give greater honour to some parts 25 Stop divisions in body to help each other. 26 If one suffers its all parts suffering. If one part is honoured every part rejoices with them. It is important the body of Christ understands various roles assigned by God are valid and so necessary to build House of God. Each one plays active role efficiently to ensure they synchronise together so the team triumphs on God’s Side in Christ.Spiritually speaking, if the parts see eye to eye there is love and unity, peace and joy. Not chaos and confusion similar to a body dysmorphy and dystrophy, so an outsider sees a well-formed whole person yet inside a person does not think so until corrective surgery solves the problem. In Christianity God tells believers to liken church of God to the individual body parts located in the right places for God’s purpose. Each part is equaly useful and helpful so none cannot take the overall total credit exclusively for their contribution. So the body of Christ is made up various parts that look different but are purposefully designed to suit each role. So therefore, time cannot be wasted in trying to redesign the eyes, ears, nose and mouth, hands and feet to suit fanciful purpose. God in HIS Wisdom created body parts assigned so each can work all things together for greater good of mankind. Biblical principles work in places with discipline and productivity and is not an exclusive private idea to the church. Any organisation seeking the optimum performance must ensure the right skill allocated as eyes sees, ears hear, nose can scent, mouth talks, the hands work and feet to move on behalf of company. The correct skills makes talents increase through efficiency, productivity, profit margins. Ensure each part of corporate body is correctly placed and envisages short-term, mid-term, long-term vision of the future well-being of all members.God Loves to hear from all His Children so the prayer of the upright pleases God says Proverbs 15:8. Know for sure God Loves you as He KNOWS you. God is Close to you not remote, impersonal, and uninvolved in your daily lives. The Bible reveals God created humans for a very personal relationship with Him. Prayer is the key way to engage in relationship so talk to God persistently throughout the day by Word of God. In Eden Garden God talked Adam and Eve spending time together sharing thoughts and feelings as a good father makes time for his children in Genesis 3:8. Good times with father God helps to discover the kind of day children have had. If any problem shares wisdom and provides help or offer solutions. So good children are interested in spending time with parents gaining wisdom, so God’s children spend time with the Heavenly Father. God already knows our minds before we say, share, or ask anything. God Knows all things, Jesus Open door to spend time with us, listening to our prayer is born out of His love and desire to have a real and vibrant relationship with us. He is ready to listen and to guide us, but we must first come to the Source of Life. For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and His ears are attentive to prayer in 1 Peter 3:12. Body of Christ makes sure continues to meet together with other believers as the Body of Messiah required in Bible in Hebrews 10:24–25. Walk free of sin by the Grace of God’s forgiveness to join all who follow Yeshua. You need to continue to be accountable in the Body to one another and uplift one another to live a life of holiness. Each of is given a ministry of reconciliation, we should be agents of healing and restoration. The world must learn from authentic real Christianity applied in living sermons to attract more people God adds daily. Its Yahweh God’s agape love that builds a Church in Christ. The principles work in the home as well and in the community. All people need to have consideration for a real assessment of gifts of Spirit of God in all human beings. By taking time to carefully analyse the best roles each person gets fulfilment of playing their mind. This helps identify the best talent most suitable for each role by members of a community. The church is example of God to all nations so must work with people in unity and love. The Church of God in Christ is God’s Kingdom family.
