God’s Hands and Feet

Ephesians 4:11-16 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. 15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. 16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.

Christianity is designed to be a community. Each of us can make a difference in the life of someone who needs that difference.

God has made the church to be the workers of His Grace. When we are born again we are to be conduits of His blessings to other believers. If someone needs the Gospel, he sends a believer to share the Gospel. If someone needs strength and encouragement, we as the church are to be God’s hands and feet and meet that need.

When God works in us we are blessed. When He works through us we are blessed and He is glorified.
