A Bigger Picture

When going through some documents on the computer, I found this little poem that Shay wrote describing the Body of Christ.  We all fit together…

A puzzle…

Each piece needed to create a grand picture

While some have curved edges and bright colors,

Others are straight and dull

Each of them has their own place in the puzzle,

But each one cannot fit in every place

No one piece is better than another

Everyone is needed in the bigger picture

Just like the body of Christ

Every person is needed to complete the picture of Christ

While some can prophesy or heal

Others can encourage or preach

Every person has their own gift

But one person cannot have every one

Not one gift is better than the other

Everyone is needed in the bigger picture


 Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ.  For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.  Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many.

1 Corinthians 12:12-14
