Using God Given Strengths for the Good of the Whole

Reading in 1 Chronicles 24-25, all details were planned as to the order and method of performing the work of the temple. A lot of planning and organization went into the ministry. A sort of organization chart was set up so that everyone knew what his or her role should be so that every detail was attended to.

David organized singers and musicians in the temple to praise God with great earnestness and devout affections under the influences of the Holy Spirit. Poetry and music were used to inspire their devotions to God.

In the body of Christ, every member has a God given strength for the good of the whole. Each member should do what they can for God and others will build on this foundation. I read a lot of blogs each day and when a post makes a topic clear to me, I’ll make a note for future reference. For the topic of our role in community, I made a note and here’s the link: Revelations In Writing – Called To Community.

Some of the thoughts I took away from the post is when Shannon wrote that we are God’s temple and God wants His temple built up, not torn down.  All jobs are important for the work of God. We can work together to complement, encourage, and learn from each other. We need a community to pray together and share one Lord, one body, and one purpose.

Each day with God can be amazing if we understand that we are all His children singing His praises forever.
