A body isn't just a single part blown up into something huge. It's all the different -but -similar parts arranged and functioning together.

If Foot said, "I'm not elegant like Hand, embellished with rings; I guess I don't belong to this body," would that make it so?

If Ear said, "I'm not beautiful like Eye, limpid and expressive; I don't deserve a place on the head," would you want to remove it from the body?

If the body was all Eye, how could it hear? If all Ear, how could it smell?

As it is, we see that God has carefully placed each part of the body right where he wanted it.

The Bible refers to us as being part of one family. I don't know about you, but I haven't found that the call for volunteers has been all that successful in my immediate family.

1. "OK, kids, who's going to volunteer to do dishes tonight?"

NO ANSWER

2. "Any volunteers for bathing the dog?

NO ANSWER

We're all filled up for volunteers for relaxing at the lake - but who wants to volunteer to take the dock out of the freezing water?"

There is both a taught expectation and a built-in understanding that in a family we all have responsibilities and callings. We are all expected to pull our own weight - and help the others pull theirs.

The word "volunteer" works well in a culture that celebrates the "I" in individual. "I" decide of my own "free will" that "I " will help.

But in a culture that celebrates community and communion, we are really called to be "conspirators". And in Latin means : People who "breathe together".

The early Christians were so close they seemed to “breathe together. " They were seen as “one.” Wasn’t that just the kind of thing Jesus prayed for in John 17:22? when He said: ”that they might be one.” If this makes Jesus a “conspirator” then bring it on !

Here’s the deal: If Christianity is not about relationship we’ve failed the Founder. When we don’t “breathe together” we flounder and suffocate as individuals practicing meaningless religion.

God’s church is to be a thriving community wherein all the parts of the body live and breathe as one!

Seems to me that “breathing together” is the core essence of effective disciple making.

God offered a living relationship to us. It’s His plan that we pass it on to others.

I want to say thank you to each and every conspirator that serves the kids of the Maranatha Fellowship Church and keep our ministry living and breathing as one.
