      READ: 1 Corinthians 12:14-26

      But God composed the body, having given greater honor to that part which lacks it. —1 Corinthians 12:24

      The story has been told about a conductor who was rehearsing his orchestra. The organ was giving a beautiful melody, the drums were thundering, the trumpets were blaring, and the violins were singing beautifully. But
      the conductor noticed something missing—the piccolo. The piccolo player
      had gotten distracted and hoped his instrument wouldn’t be missed. The
      conductor reminded him: “Each one of us is necessary.”
      This was essentially the same message Paul communicated to the Corinthian
      believers in his first letter to them (12:4-7). Every Christian plays an important role in the body of Christ. Paul gave a list of gifts of the
      Spirit and compared their use to the functioning of the various parts of the human body for the good of the whole (vv.8-10). The Corinthian
      believers may have had different cultural backgrounds, gifts, and
      personalities, but they were filled with the same Spirit and belonged to the same body of Christ. Paul made special mention of the parts of the
      body that were weak and obscure, and taught that all believers play a
      necessary and significant role. No one part was more necessary than any
      other.
      Remember, Jesus has given you a significant part to play and will use you to build up His people. —Marvin Williams
      The church, a living body, containing all the parts—
      It lives, it moves, it functions, and touches many hearts;
      When each part is committed to do the Savior’s will,
      His members are united, His purpose they fulfill. —Fitzhugh
      As a member of the body of Christ, you are a necessary part of the whole.
