It takes every Christian doing the job God has called us to do for the body to function as it should. God designed the church to be a showcase of His love for the lost. What does the world see when it looks at us? Does it see a functioning, joy-filled body or a dysfunctional organism? Let us pray that each of us would be building up the rest of the body instead of fault-finding. Peace and joy draw others to Christ, Let others see the joy you have found in serving a risen Savior. We should practice using our gifts year round, not just a few weeks of each year. Could you imagine what the world would be like if God limited His peace and security to one month each year?
