THE UNITY OF THE BODY
By A. A. Sandoz
Scripture Reading: Romans 12:5; Ephesians 4:4
David in the Psalms wrote concerning his physical body that he was,
"fearfully and wonderfully made." The human body is a marvel when we
think of how the brain being the control center controls all body
functions. I could not move my arm unless the brain (the instrument of
spirit or mind) first signaled the arm to move through the muscles and
system of nerves. I am totally dependent upon the brain. The brain is
probably the last unexplored frontier of medical science. The average
brain weighs about three pounds and contains twelve billion cells. One
scientist has stated, "The human brain is the most complex arrangement
of matter in the universe."
The members of the human body bring before us another amazement, that
each member is dependent upon other members. My fingers cannot function
apart from my hand, likewise my hand cannot function apart from the
muscles and tendons in my arm. If I close the fingers of my right hand
in a door my left hand is quick to the rescue to free my injured hand.
My left hand is ready to comfort my injured hand by holding it until the
pain is relieved. Other parts of my body are affected as well, I may
feel weak in the legs or experience pain in my arm, this being because
the body is one.
Remembering what we have said about the human body, as we turn to the
Scriptures, Paul refers to the Church, the Body of Christ. This one body
(Eph. 4:4) being a living organism is made up of believers which
constitute the members. The Lord Jesus Christ is the Head of the Body or
control center and all members must look to Him for wisdom, knowledge,
guidance and counsel through the Pauline Revelation (Col. 2:3). The
Apostle declares, "We are members one of another" (Rom. 4:5). When one
of the members of the Body loses a loved one and is sorrowing we all
sorrow and would seek to comfort. When one is newly saved and rejoicing
in the Lord we as members rejoice as well. There is a mutual dependence
upon one another which constitutes the, "Unity of the Body."
AS WE HAVE ENTERED INTO THIS NEW YEAR 2011, MY PRAYER IS THAT IT BE
ONE OF PEACE AS YOU REST IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. I pray dear Lord of
manifold grace, I earnestly yearn to grow in every aspect of Your grace.
Lord Jesus, I humbly desire to find increasing intimacy with You. Please
work Your grace deeply into my heart and manifest it fully, as you live
your life through me. I will trust you to make all the choices, and give
you praise and credit for all. Amen
