Ephesians 4:16 KJV
From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
The body of Christ increases as each member supplies their part in love! Every part is necessary to the success of the whole. This is not only true in the church, but in the family, workplace, or your favorite sports team. Each part is important and has a supply that is necessary for the success of the whole.
Throughout my life the Lord has led me to different places, people, meetings, etc. There have been times when I questioned God as to why I was even there. I could plainly see things not only that I disagreed with, but that were wrong. That is when the Lord spoke clearly to me about this topic. He said, “Always remember, there are two primary purposes as to where I place you. It is true that you are there to receive a supply, but it’s also true that you are there to bring a supply.” This got my attention, and I changed my view from that very day! Have you ever thought maybe the church, your home, or your marriage might be lacking because you are not bringing your supply?
If we do not contribute, we should not complain! We live in a society where many are so caught up with self that they do not see how their actions affect others. All they see is what others are doing or not doing that displeases them. When you do this, you are the problem and not the solution.
Maybe that person in your church or family lacks in an area that you are gifted. Instead of talking about how much they lack in that area, why not bring your supply? This is how the body grows and increases! Roll up your sleeves today and bring your part so we can all succeed in building God’s kingdom! Time is short and it’s time to get serious!
