Topic: Fine Your Relevance [Thursday, 2nd March 2017]
Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles? 1 Corinthians 12:29
One thing about the members of the body of Christ is that they are all relevant. Most times, some folks feel that they are not relevant to any course. They come to a gathering, sit and listen and then go home. Even in their private lives outside the church, they portray this same ‘i-am-not-relevant’ attitude. Most times, this is a function of their mindset or inferiority complex. But that does not remove anything from the truth that every member of the body of Christ is relevant.
Not everyone will be a pastor. Not everyone will do great miracles, not everyone will be a prophet. But most times, we set that as the benchmark every Christian should be operating with. And this has left so many folks thinking that they don’t have anything to offer the body of Christ, especially when they don’t “measure up”. How untrue this is! Everyone is important and relevant, no matter how less grand we think them to be. You just need to find out what you are good at and use it to be a blessing to the body of Christ.
There are other things which might not bring us to the ‘spotlight’, that we can do in the body of Christ. It is this craze for the spotlight that have actually broken the resolve of people, especially when they are not gifted to always be in the ‘spotlight’, to find their relevance. But that should not be the aim. The aim should be to use your gifting to add value to the body of Christ, and you can only do that when you find your relevance.
Keep winning daily.
Put your giftings to use and be relevant to the body of Christ, even if it does not bring you under the spotlight. There you will find your relevance.
