Jesus calls the church “His body.” When we understand this analogy, we can know what the church is all about. The human body is made up of many parts, and the most amazing aspect of the whole human body is how its millions of parts, though individual, are all interrelated & interdependent. Every part needs each other in order to function effectively as a body. The same principles that apply to the human body are true for the church body as well.

 

“He (Christ) makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love” (Ephesians 4:16).

 

Every person (“each part”) in a church has a work to do in relationship to other people (“helps the other parts grow”). This is what makes a healthy church. People need to be involved in the work of God alongside others. This promotes real spiritual growth. Through serving, people can discover their spiritual gifts, draw closer to God, help others, & learn to love others like Jesus did. Lives are transformed!

 

I encourage you to find a place to serve because it offers you the chance to grow spiritually & develop friendships as you serve with one another. So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to get involved!
