45. Be Who You Are in Christ's Body and Let Others Be Who They Are

"The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ." (1 Cor 12:12 NIV)

The worldwide body of Christ is one unit - one body - although just like a human body it is made up of many different and diverse parts that all have different and diverse functions.  The Spirit of God has placed each member exactly where He has seen fit to place them.  In the church today, some people feel pressure from other people to function in ways that are contrary to how God has made them to be.  This leads to much confusion and frustration, and to a body that doesn't function very well.

There is one Spirit and one Head to this one body, but again, the one body is made up of many different parts.  Be who you are in Christ's body and allow others to be who they are.  This is how the body is meant to function, and it functions well this way!
