Cause and Effect

Cause and Effect

Every single person in the body of Christ have a purpose as to why they exist. No one lives just to exist, we exist because we were given a purpose to live. A single prayer from the lowliest saint has divine power, and carries great energy to effect the masses. God is able to make all things (prayer) to work together for good, to them who love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:26-28) (James 5:16)

For as by ONE man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of ONE shall many be made righteous. (Romans 5:19) Just one person has an affect on the many!!!
No one is above another in the body of Christ as we are all one in Christ who being our head. Yet, every member has a specif job to do with in the body of Christ.

Rom 12:6 HAVING GIFTS THAT DIFFER ACCORDING TO THE GRACE GIVEN TO US, LET US USE THEM: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith;
Rom 12:7 if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching;
Rom 12:8 the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.

Not every one is called into the “FIVE” fold MINISTRY as a pastor, teacher, apostle, prophet, or evangelist, but we are all to called to MINISTER to others. We are all called to “SUBMIT” to one another, not just as a wife to her husband (1 Peter 5:5)

As iron sharpens iron so does a person sharpen his brother or sister as they minister to each other, speaking the truth in love.

Eph 4:15 Rather, let our lives lovingly express truth [in all things, speaking truly, dealing truly, living truly]. Enfolded in love, let us grow up in every way and in all things into Him Who is the Head, [even] Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).
Eph 4:16 For because of Him the whole body (the church, in all its various parts), closely joined and firmly knit together by the joints and ligaments with which it is supplied, WHEN EACH PART [WITH POWER ADAPTED TO ITS NEED] IS WORKING PROPERLY [IN ALL ITS FUNCTIONS], GROWS TO FULL MATURITY, BUILDING ITSELF UP IN LOVE. (AMP)

Everything we do or say whether within our own family, or the family of God in which we are connected, causes spiritual growth unto a mature man building it self up in love when we are speaking the truth (Word of God) to one another.
