God’s Toolbox

God's toolbox

 
If someone asked you to build a home and gave you the plans and all the materials: concrete, Sheetrock, bricks, wires, etc, but didn’t give you other necessary tools like saws, hammers, nails, screwdrivers, pliers, etc; How effective would you be in building the house?
 
Just as there are a variety of materials and workers necessary to properly build a house, a variety of Believers are necessary in building up and edifying the body of Christ.
 
1 Corinthians 12:12, 15-20, (12)For even as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body, though they are many, are one body, so also is Christ. (15)If the foot says, “Because I am not a hand, I am not a part of the body,” it is not for this reason any the less a part of the body. (16)And if the ear says, “Because I am not an eye, I am not a part of the body,” it is not for this reason any the less a part of the body. (17)If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole were hearing, where would the sense of smell be? (18) But now God has placed the members, each one of them, in the body, just as He desired. (19)If they were all one member, where would the body be? (20)But now there are many members, but one body.
 
God has a place for you in His church! He has The Plans in order, but wants you to do the job with the heavenly tools He has provided you with.
 
Do you know your spiritual gifts (tools)?
 
He wants you to enjoy using them in building the Body of Christ.
 
Don’t let your tools sit the box unused!
Consider ways you can put your tools to work in building God’s Kingdom.
