Gal. 6:3 If you think you are too important to help someone in need, you are only fooling yourself. You are really a nobody.

There are some in the body of Christ who unfortunately set themselves apart from the rest of the body and don't respond to the needs of others. They deem themselves too important or busy to get involved. They get wrapped up into themselves and forget that they are but one part of the body. Or, they get so wrapped up into their personal responsibilities that they let others do that part of ministry. What they fail to realize is that in order to truly be a part of the body of Christ, we are intricately related to each other and involved in each other's lives. We need each other and must depend on each other. We are not isolated from any other part of the body. We must all function together as a whole in order to be who Christ created us to be.

Every member of the body of Christ is a servant to the other members. We are in the body to minister to each other's needs. We cannot lay claim to membership and isolate ourselves from any other part of the body. It is foolishness to act like we are a somebody when in reality our actions show we are a nobody.

Don't fall into the trap of idleness because you think you are a somebody. Faith without works is dead and so is knowledge without works. Your work is important, but so is every other member of the body. It is our mandate to love each other, and you can't love someone and lord it over them.

Ask the Lord to show you someone in need today and a way that you can help him.
