The ONE Who Unites Us

And in the church God has appointed first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, also those having gifts of healing those able to help others, those with gifts of administration, and those speaking in different kinds of tongues. – 1 Corinthians 12:28

As pointed out in the post “Unlimited Power Together”, Paul faced opposition at the church of Corinth. To defend himself, he explained that his authority came from Christ. That there are no echelons of authority within the church. Each person has a role to play according to their God given strengths for the benefit of all.

So the lesson for us is to know our individual strengths and be confident. Know what others strengths are and complement them. Lay claim to the ONE who unites us all. Together, we can gain advantage over the enemy and achieve the standards set by God in His Word.

This day with God, receive inspiration from the song There is Power by Lincoln Brewster.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
