God emphasizes to us that the church is a unified body, with each part having a different role in ministry for the building up of the body. This blows up the “clergy versus laity” model that is so common as to be accepted implicitly in most people’s minds. The church is not one minister and many members; it is many memberministers! It is a body with all parts operating; an engine with all parts functioning; a biosphere with all parts living and fulfilling their roles; a bustling corporation with every employee scurrying about doing their part to accomplish the mission statement; a family where all the members are doing their part. See Ephesians 4:11-16 and Romans 12:3-8 for other expressions of the same truths. What has God appointed you to do in the church? Find your role, exercise that role wholeheartedly as to the Lord, and be satisfied in it. Keep your eyes open for more opportunities to serve, or different ways your gift(s) can be used in the church, or for a different gift you did not know you had. Pray God will bless the church with more gifted people as He sees fit.

Our Scripture reading was found in Isaiah 13:1-22.
