Daily devotional: Complementary parts of one body

Scripture
But our bodies have many parts, and God has put each part just where he wants it.
1 Corinthians 12:18 NLT

Observation
God gives each of us complementary spiritual gifts so that when we come together as a church, we can help each other and function as a body whose sum is far more effective than each of its individual parts.

Application
Be thankful for the gifts the Holy Spirit has given me. Don't envy those He has given to others. Use my gifts diligently!

Prayer
Lord, I love you. Your power is beyond comprehenshion. You are just and righteous (Job 37:23). Thank you that You are so compassionate and patient with us, that You do not destroy us but rather provided Jesus to be our substitute to take the penalty we deserve for our sins. Thank you for changing my life and making yourself evident to me, and thank you for allowing me to hear of other changed lives that encourage me too. Help me to use my gifts wisely and in a way that promotes unity in the church. To You be all glory and honor and praise forevermore! Amen!
