Even at times we feel insignificant in the role we have from God, without us (like a tooth on the gear) this machine becomes dysfunctional. Without the help of other useful equipment applying & supplying their energy in Gods process makes for a difficult time to get the job done that is before us, no one gear is higher (more powerful) than the other, & yet we struggle with who gets the credit & glory for the operation… we learn from a picture that God has us where He desires us to be used in the best possible place ever. Can we learn our part & become the very best of what God has planned for us individually?
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:
So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.”
