Who needs a foot?

AhhhRecently God has taught me a tremendous lesson about the beauty of the body of Christ through my own pain.  After experiencing a simple stretch of my foot under a table at Panera Bread, pain reeked up my entire leg.  As I got up and headed to the door, I noticed that I had to limp to make it out to my car.  Twenty minutes later, I was in the emergency room seated in a wheel chair curious as to what was going on.  Long story short, it was tendonitis from the past few days of testosterone release (football and intense bball w/ my competitive teenager).

God has shown me personally that no part of the body is insignificant.  After hopping on one foot and parading everywhere on crutches, I have been humbled by how much I need my feet.  Also, 1 Corinthians 12 has taken on a new meaning.  The is church is one body with many members.  Every member is needed in order for the body to function properly.

We recently celebrated as a church over forty one volunteers at Wellspring who have made themselves available through service.  It is amazing to see what God has done through the body through many members.  Check out the message once it’s available online.
