Our Place In God’s Kingdom

May 19th, 2023

1 Corinthians 12:1-11

When we truly consider the work of the Spirit among us and the gifts the Spirit has given us, a remarkable image forms. We are all fulfilling our God-given purpose in bringing forth God’s kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.

When I think of the various gifts we are called to steward, I imagine the NASA control room as a space shuttle is about to be launched. We’ve likely seen news footage or movies where that room is portrayed—everyone at their station with the main director pacing about, giving and receiving information to and from everyone in the room. For the success of any space mission, each person has a very specific role to fill. A successful mission could not happen with only those considered to be main characters.

We’re all a part of God’s grand mission to usher in the kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven. It takes all kinds of people with all kinds of spiritual gifts. God has made us for a uniquely divine purpose. Not only is every role important, but the kingdom comes as we yield ourselves to our role within it.
