The New Testament has many references in it to believers as the “body of Christ.” We are His body, His hands and feet here on this earth, created to do works to glorify His name. The scripture also takes the metaphor further when it describes how the body of Christ, just like the human body, has many parts, each with different roles. In Romans 12:46, we read:
“Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given us.”
I love how God provides concepts in ways that we can understand. Each of us with our own bodies sees, knows and understands how many parts work together in order for us to function. Every day we experience the truth of the concept that our different body parts each has a different role. God perfectly designed each part of our bodies to accomplish a very specific and special function, so that when all the parts are working together, we are whole, complete, and ready for service.
So it is with the body of Christ, and so it is with our ministry here at A Woman’s Choice. God brings together people from many different backgrounds, with many different gifts, abilities and resources to save and change lives here in our ministry. One part is no greater than another and every part is needed in order to function. So whether you serve here in our center as a volunteer, board member or staff, or you pray faithfully for us from your home, or you participate in our events, or you generously donate from your resources, YOU are a part of the body that makes up A Woman’s Choice! Every baby’s life that is saved, every heart that is given to Christ, every woman and man who redeemed and renewed…is all because of YOU—you doing your part in the body! THANK YOU for being one of the many members that make up our body here at A Woman’s Choice!
