Daily Encounter: A Week-day Devotional by Richard (Dick) Innes of ACTS International.

Friday, April 24, 2015


You Are Important

"Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it."1

You've probably seen the following article. I don't know who originated it, but it is a good reminder that every one of us who is a Christian has a vital role to play in God's work here on earth.

Xvxn though this typxwritxr is an old modxl, it works vxry wxll, xxcxpt for only onx kxy. You'd think that with all the othxr kxys working, onx kxy would hardly bx noticxd. But just onx kxy out of whack sxxms to ruin thx wholx xffort.

Havx you xvxr said to yoursxlf, "I'm only onx pxrson. No onx will noticx if I don't do my bxst." But it doxs makx a diffxrxncx, bxcausx to bx xffxctive, a family, an organization or a businxss nxxds complxtx participation by xvxryonx to the bxst of his or hxr ability.

So if You'rx having onx of thosx days whxn you think you just arxn't vxry important and you'rx txmptxd to slack off, rxmxmbxr this old typxwritxr. You arx a kxy pxrson, and whxn you don't do your bxst, nothing xlsx around you works out thx way it's supposxd to.

Can the "H" say to the "S" I have no need of you, or the "D" to the "E" I have no need of you?"

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, help me to realize that in Your purpose for my life You have a very definite part for me to play. Please give me the want-to-be what You want me to be and the want-to-do what You want me to do—and the help to do it diligently and faithfully for Your glory. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus's name, amen."

1. 1 Corinthians 12:27 (NIV).
