Author Rasalyn Ikpatt takes you on a sweet journey filled will awe and wonder at our divine worth. You can feel her commitment and love of the subject through her words. While my beliefs differ ever so slightly from hers I still found the book full of some wonderful truths. I would recommend this book for anyone who wants an insight into some of the comforting beliefs of Christianity. I would particularly recommend this book for any Christians who struggle with feelings of worthlessness and low self-esteem.
“So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another” (Rom. 12:5).
This is the frame or support system that keeps us in balance in Christ. It is a network of how God positioned each of us in Christ for good works. With this in mind, we know and operate within our bearings, our assigned measure of faith, and our callings without jealousy or competition as everyone does his or her part individually but in unison and for a common goal. The human body must be understood as a single unit with many parts for it to function properly. There are no unnecessary parts in the body.
As I’m sitting here, typing, my entire body is involved according to each one’s use and capacity. My fingers seem to be the busiest parts right now, but my mind is equally busy. My feet know their contribution is to just be on the floor. My knees know they need to stay bent; my eyes know how important it is that they work with my mind and my fingers in unison. Many other parts seem dormant, but if they were out of working order in any way, this whole typing wouldn’t be possible.
This passage helps us to understand what God is doing and how He planned life for us in relation to other believers. They are not separate individuals but different parts of the same body. Each believer depends on others to survive and grow into his or her full potential. There are no other ways to achieve this union but to do it as God planned it. You need to know how you fit into the kingdom and how your purpose contributes to the kingdom of God.
You also need to know and see the need for others to come into their respective places in the kingdom. You will be more effective when you operate within your gifts with a full understanding that the fullness of life for the whole body depends on the growing of others into their gifts. You will be more tolerant of others; you will pray more for their well-being and spiritual strength than you accuse or rebuke them. This verse is information that puts a new perspective in our walk, and beautifully changes our image to fit into our own place in the kingdom, while making room for others to do the same. It births the love that marks us as His own. Our perfect image looks glorious from here.
