“For the BODY is not one member, but many.”
1 Corinthians 12:14
Ever feel lost, alone, like no one cares? Some people experience this feeling from time to time. Others battle it consistently. It’s a feeling we call loneliness. Loneliness is a very complex emotion that makes connecting with others difficult. The Bible says we are never alone. We have each other & we are loved. We are cared about and we are not lost.
Today’s verse gives us a treasure that’ll help ward off feelings of loneliness. It reminds us that no one is alone on the journey of life. It reminds us that we shouldn’t be going through things all by ourselves. We’re meant to accomplish things together, just like the parts of a body do. Everything we do is done for the benefit of the whole body. Sure some parts go first and others follow, but we are all moving forward together as a team. That is the BODY of Christ being Jesus hands & feet on earth.
All believers belongs to God’s family. We are all moving forward as part of His BODY – the Church. Christ’s body supplies us as we grow & flourish together. His supply causes a true miracle when individual people, unique and dynamic, come together as one. The become Jesus magnificent New Testament Church.
This week let’s get refocused and rid our emotions of the feelings of loneliness. Jesus established the Church so that we could be there for each other. So if feelings of loneliness or isolation rise up get into God’s house, the Church. Connect with other believers there. Allow them to encourage you, love you & speak hope into you. Let the BODY heal you from the toxic emotion called loneliness. You’ll be surprised what a difference it can make.
