The Church Choir

Written by Joyce C. Lock


Continued from page 1

Yes,repparttar choir has many parts, not just one part. Ifrepparttar 126917 alto says, "I am not a part ofrepparttar 126918 choir because I am not a soloist," that does not make him any less a part ofrepparttar 126919 choir. And what would you think if you heard a youth say, "I am not a part ofrepparttar 126920 choir becauserepparttar 126921 choir loft is running out of room?" Would that make him any less a part ofrepparttar 126922 choir? Supposerepparttar 126923 whole choir was a director, then who would sing? Or ifrepparttar 126924 whole choir just sang, who would playrepparttar 126925 instruments? But that isn'trepparttar 126926 way God made us. He has many parts forrepparttar 126927 choir and has put each part just where He wants it. What a strange thing it would be if it only had one part! So He has made many parts, but still there is one choir.

The alto can never say torepparttar 126928 soprano, "I don't need you." The choir can never say torepparttar 126929 director, "I don't need you." And some ofrepparttar 126930 parts that seem weakest and least important are reallyrepparttar 126931 most necessary. If one part suffers, all parts suffer with it, and if one part is honored, allrepparttar 126932 parts are glad.

Now here is what I'm trying to say: all of you together are one choir of Christ and each one of you is a separate and necessary part of it.

Sincerely, X Paul

A Time for Every Season

Devotedly, we, then, begin to serve God (having experienced His perfection) for what Heís already done for us, for who He is, out of love alone. He is worthy to be praised.

Byrepparttar time weíve reached this far in our own spiritual journey, knowingrepparttar 126916 depths of Satan, we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that Godís instruction isrepparttar 126917 path to life.

If our desires donít match Godís will, weíre not in our right mind.
