One Body, but Many Parts

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 baptised 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.

"Now if the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. If they were all one part, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, but one body.

The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!” On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and the parts that we think are less honourable we treat with special honour. And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty, while our presentable parts need no special treatment. But God has put the body together, giving greater honour to the parts that lacked it so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honoured, every part rejoices with it.

Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.

1 Corinthians 12: 12-27

Making Decisions

Making decisions can often be very difficult, and how can we be sure the decisions we make are the right ones?

Today's verse from Isaiah 30 provides us with welcome encouragement.

Avoiding Conflict

Romans 12:17-18 provides wise and thoughtful advice for all those who may be facing conflict or feeling anger and resentment as a result of other peoples' actions.

'Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "it is mine to avenge; I will repay," says the Lord' (Romans 12:19)

Wise advice indeed.

Where does help come from?

We offer our prayers for those in Australia who fear the threat of spreading fires, and to all people who are facing trauma or danger.

Happy New Year!

Prayer in the Spirit

When we are unsure of how to pray or feel lost for words, today's verse from Romans 8 is a wonderful reminder of the power of the Holy Spirit.

That the relationship between God the Father and the Holy Spirit is so close that the Spirit's prayers do not need to be spoken, because God knows his every thought.

Strength for the Weak

Many members of the Connexion community will have friends and family that they care deeply about, who are lacking in strength or suffering from illness.

We hope that today's wonderful verse from Isaiah 40 will provide much needed inspiration and comfort.
