If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it. Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. In life, we are all parts of various “teams.” Whether those are literal athletic teams or figurative ones such as families, circles of friends, churches or business offices, these teams all operate on the same concept of working together as a group and offering mutual support. It’s also a concept that was highlighted in the Bible many times when referencing the Body of Christ. God meant life to be lived out in a total team effort. If lived properly, no one should be in it alone—not when there is a world full of Christians who are called to serve the Lord by serving others. As His representatives here on earth, it is our role to come alongside those who are struggling and offer them His love and support. Think about your “team” today. Is one of your teammates, friends, coworkers or family members struggling? If so, take the opportunity to put your faith into action by rallying around them. It’s a blessing and a responsibility to be the love of Christ to others. Through your actions, they will be able to see and experience the love that God has for them and will be encouraged to trust Him through the challenge.
