God Uses Us All

Two streams of different size run side by side.  One is obviously larger and carries more water.  It nourishes a larger portion of the landscape that the smaller one.  Have you ever felt like the small stream pictured above, of not much use, of little importance?  Compared to others in your church who are well known and recognized by everyone as a strong force for our Lord, you may feel insignificant.  The small stream above may not carry as much water as the larger one, but it does nourish certain plants that receive no water form the larger stream.  You see, the larger stream doesn't reach them.  It has little or no effect on these certain plants.  The same is true of the "insignificant" member of the church.  He/she has the ability to reach certain people who are not fed by the "important" people of the church.  It takes special, specific anointing to reach certain people, and it is not always given to the "important" people.  Instead, God distributes His anointing for reaching certain people to the "insignificant" people of the church.  Actually, there are no "insignificant" people, and there are no "important" people in the work of the Kingdom of God.  We each have a job to do, and without YOU the work of your church will be incomplete.

"But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.  If they were all one part, where would the body be?  As it is, there are many parts, but one body." (NIV)

1 Corinthians 12:18-20
