Some days we feel dispensable and worthless. God wants you to know that you, my sister/brother, are invaluable. Not only are you invaluable, you as a member of the body of Christ, are not alone. Use God’s Word to silence Satan every time he tries to bully you into believing that you are worthless. Satan is a bully! And like most bullies, Satan seems to know exactly what to say and do to make you doubt your strength. Like most bullies, Satan will try to keep you from running to the teacher by instilling fear and feelings of unworthiness in you. Fortunately, our teacher —Jesus Christ— is always there, with His arms wide open waiting for you to run into His arms. Our Rabbi silences the bully each and every time. Know the Teacher’s Word and use it to silence the bully every time he targets you. You may feel weak right now but that does not make you dispensable. You, my bullied sister/brother, will not be the loser of this battle if you use the Word of God as your weapon! It’s never too late to start fighting back!
“For the body does not consist of one member but of many. If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. If the whole body were an eye, where would be the sense of hearing? If the whole body were an ear, where would be the sense of smell? But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose. If all were a single member, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, yet one body. The eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you,” nor again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” On the contrary, the parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and on those parts of the body that we think less honorable we bestow the greater honor, and our unpresentable parts are treated with greater modesty, which our more presentable parts do not require. But God has so composed the body, giving greater honor to the part that lacked it, that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together. Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.” 1 Corinthians 12:14-27
