Today’s Scripture: from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. Ephesians 4:16 ESV
We already have what it takes. We are equipped to do our part for the one body. Although this world and our flesh tries to tell us we are some how insufficient, we are ready now. We have the words right now to build someone up.
Ephesians 4:28 promises we have something to share with anyone in need. Yes we are maturing into the fullness of Christ but wherever we are in our growth we have something to share.
Christ has already equipped us for our part, and when we work our part properly, the whole body of Christ will be built in love. We can tell the truth to our neighbors that we are all part of the one body; a body of love that needs each of us to be our part.
Will you be confident that Christ has already equipped you and gifted you to show His love today?
Today’s Prayer: Father God, thank You for the gifts of Christ. Thank You for equipping me to do Your work of love in Your body. I find boldness in knowing it is You who has equipped me. I trust in Your Spirit to guide me and to provide the love I am to give to others. Amen
