Give Me A Hand!
Although people who’ve lost or are born without limbs can (and do) learn to get around their handicaps, there’s no doubt having all a human’s original equipment is the best way to go. A person who is missing a hand, for example, will have a more difficult time performing some tasks. There will be things they can do, and things they simply cannot do (like chin-ups!). As bad as that might be, however, imagine a hand that is severed from a body trying to do ANYTHING! Many people who choose not to attend church are making both of these analogies a reality in the Body of Christ. The Body will be missing them, and they, all alone, can do nothing for the Body. Left alone long enough, their faith will shrivel and die. God doesn’t want us just to continue to meet to keep us from sleeping in on Sunday morning. He wants us to grow and be all we can be for the kingdom as we spur each other in praise and worship of Him!
“The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ.” 1 Corinthians 12:12
