It Takes a Church
The Pumpkin Patch is a great example of what it means to be part of the Body of Christ. For us to be a church that functions as God intended we must all use our spiritual gifts and natural abilities to build the church up in love. We need everyone to find their role within the church. We need teachers to teach. We need encouragers to encourage. We need organizers to organize. If one person in the church is not using their gifts, there is a hole that someone without the gift is trying to fill without the joy that is received by those who have the gift. Paul tells us, “Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.” (Ephesians 4:15-16)
Thank you for doing your part! It takes us all!
