I just got off the phone with a young lady who works for Stonecroft Ministries.

We’ve never talked before but we were both able to share our life stories – the root – the foundation – the connection – is that Jesus is in the life changing business.

My life has been blessed and encouraged by her testimony.

Ladies, if you have surrendered your life to Christ then you have a testimony.

I don’t care if you’ve been raised in church your whole life – a sinner is a sinner – no sin outweighs the other in the heart of Christ.

Jesus’ blood was shed for all. If you have a testimony then share your story. It’s meant for someone to hear.

We all have different roles – someone that has been born and raised in church will be able to reach and relate to someone that I can’t reach or relate to. We all have a place.

My heart has truly been encouraged this morning.

I Corinthians 12:27 – 31

27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. 28 And God has placed in the church first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, of helping, of guidance, and of different kinds of tongues. 29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? 30 Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? 31 Now eagerly desire the greater gifts.

Verses 12 – 26 explains the comparison between the body and church body.
