“One Body In Christ”

BIBLE MEDITATION:
“So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.” Romans 12:5

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
My left hand is a member of my body. So is my right hand. The right hand cannot direct the left hand and vice versa. But both hands can receive instruction from the head. If one hand is connected to the head and the other hand is connected to the head, then it simply follows that our hands are going to submit one to another. They’re not going to fight one another.

It’s the same way in the Body of Christ—the church. Who is the head of the body? The Lord Jesus Christ. Who are the members of the body? You and I. God put us in the church together that we might have a spirit of submission in the fear of the Lord.

ACTION POINT:
Is there someone in the church with whom you’re having difficulties? Submit yourself to the Lord and allow Him to give you grace to submit one to another.

BONUS SPIRITUAL MESSAGE:

POSITIVE

SPIRITUAL

LIVING

     I’ve had a few arguments with people, but I never carry a grudge.  You know why?  While you’re carrying a grudge, they’re out dancing.        – Buddy Hackett

Reputation

Each of us must be committed to maintaining the reputation of all of us. And all of us must be committed to maintaining the reputation of each of us.  Accuracy builds credibility.

The Bible gives us a list of human stories on both sides of the ledger. One list of human stories is used as examples—do what these people did. Another list of human stories is used as warnings—don’t do what these people did.  So if your story ever gets in one of these books, make sure they use it as an example, not a warning.

It only takes one lie to taint your entire testimony in a court of law.

Honesty is a vital part of having a good reputation. – Jim Rohn

Living a Life of Meaning and Unstoppability by Cynthia Kersey

Living a life of meaning and unstoppability always involves giving.  Many of the classic religious and secular texts throughout history contain some variation on “Give, and it will be given to you.”  Think about that for a moment.  Isn’t it true that the people with the most love in their lives give the most love?  The people with the most friends are the most friendly?

A recent study by Stephanie L. Brown, Ph.D., of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, even showed that seniors who give aid and support to friends and neighbors actually live longer than those who simply receive it.

What you give doesn’t have to be big.  It might be a smile to a stranger, an offer of business advice, a financial donation to a cause you’ve wanted to help, or a few volunteer hours at a community shelter.  By sharing your talents, time or money, you will become invigorated about your goal and your life because you will be making a difference in the lives of others.

TV host Larry King asked Dana Reeve, wife of the late paralyzed actor Christopher Reeve, if she ever got depressed about her husband being confined to a wheelchair.  “Yes, of course,” she said.  “And when that happens, I immediately reach out to someone else who’s hurting.  Chris does the same thing when he gets down.  In fact, we usually do it together.  Helping others is a surefire way to help yourself.”

Consider making a daily habit of giving to others.  It doesn’t have to take a lot of time and energy.  By opening your eyes and heart, you will notice countless ways you can simply reach out to others.  There is nothing more fulfilling in life than expressing your love for others.  When you create a habit of giving, you are the greatest recipient.

Those people who tell me that I’m going to hell while they are going to heaven somehow make me very glad that we’re going to separate destinations. – Martin Terman

 

Mazal Tov

Four novice nuns were about to take their vows.

Dressed in their white gowns, they came into the chapel with the Mother Superior, and were about to undergo the ceremony to marry them to Jesus, making them “Brides of  Christ.”

Just as the ceremony was about to begin, a group of Chasidic Jews with black hats, long sideburns, and long beards came  in and sat in the front row.

The Mother Superior said to them, “I am honored that you would want to share this experience with us, but do you mind if I ask you why you came?”

One of the Jews replied, “We’re from the groom’s family.”
