1st Corinthians 12

Read 1st Corinthians 12:1-31 here.

Have you ever been a part of something that made you see beyond yourself?

For me, that was being on a team. In particular, my college football team. We had players from all over the country who came together for a common goal, win games. We did. We won our conference championship. I remember the ring celebration party. We had a blast. Classmates, not involved with the team, asked to see our rings over the next month in class. It was a pretty cool experience.

When you believe in Jesus, you are immediately brought into an incredible journey of faith that is as much about other people as it is you. Often times though, we don’t know how to find our belonging and significance in the greater picture.

Today, I want to invite you to read the text at the link above. Then pray. What is your place in God’s kingdom? Where do you fit?

Every one of us who believes in Jesus has something to contribute to the Magnificent Kingdom!
