Romans 12:4-5 (NET)
For just as in one body we have many members, and not all the members serve the same function, so we who are many are one body in Christ, and individually we are members who belong to one another.
Devin didn’t fully understand the scope of his assignment in the Lord’s body, but he knew he had an assignment and wanted to fulfill it. As he started producing short comedy films, he saw how successful they were and realized that the grace of God was responsible for the success. As he continued to develop himself in that area, he saw that great stories and ideas came to him very easily. It was not easy at first, but Devin was consistent and faithful, and the Lord made him very great.
Many people want to confer upon themselves the title of ‘apostle’ because they want to be the greatest, and they believe that the office of an apostle is the greatest office in the body of Christ. They do not realize that Christ rewards us according to our faithfulness not according to our offices.
If you love and want to serve God with your life, start by waiting on Him and letting Him lead you the way He wants you to serve Him. Don’t be afraid of starting small.
In the parable of the mustard seed and the little leaven that grew to fill the entire dough (see Matthew 13:31-33), in illustrating the nature of the kingdom, the Lord Jesus reveals to us that even though a commission is destined to be very great, it would usually start small. If we do not learn how to be faithful when things are little, we would not wait to see them grow into the greatness that God has purposed. The problem is that many people get discouraged and give up too early, but if a man draws his strength and bearing from the Lord, he would find the strength to endure the little beginnings and stay faithful until he sees the days of greatness.
Go into today remembering that waiting on the Lord and totally depending on Him is the way to walk accurately and fulfill your assignment as a member of the body of Christ.
Prayer: Lord, please give me the strength to stay faithful until I see the fulfillment of what you have spoken. Amen.
