    January 21: You Belong

               

    Feeling “less than” is one of the Devil’s best tricks. We notice what we’re not, what we can’t do, what’s uncomfortable, what’s out of our skill set. But Paul saves us from envy and discouragement by reminding us all that God didn’t design every part of the body to do everything. By his design you can’t do that. Let go of the guilt. Give up the competition. Embrace your importance in his grand design.

    January 14: Unique

               

    Scripture and experience teach us that people are different. Like different parts of the body, God intentionally decided to make you different from everyone else. That truth has the potential to make us better and stronger…or, if we ignore it, to make us frustrated at everyone who is not our mirror image.

    January 7: United

               

    As Paul begins his discussion of the “body of Christ,” he reminds us of the big picture. Baptism. Spirit. Spiritual thirst quenched by the gospel. What the Church has in common is exponentially bigger than our differences. He does the same in Ephesians 4, repeating the unity we have in Jesus—one Lord, one faith, one hope, on God. Therefore, before we talk about our uniqueness, we celebrate our unity in Jesus, no matter what our diverse wiring, quirks, or personality.
