In Jesus, everyone has their part. This is important for us to remember and we'd better believe it. If we don't, then we're going to lose out on what God wants to do.
I was reminded of this today in our "devotions". We're just starting a study guide, this one done by Eugene Peterson on Psalms: Prayers of the Heart. I volunteered to lead it, so I did, but did so by attempting to get out of the way as much as possible, and encourage a discussion with each other over the questions pertaining to Psalm 1. It was a good exercise and reminder to me of what we gain when we seek to let everyone have their part, and what we lose when we don't.
Of course each of us has our part. It may be small and by itself it may seem insignificant, but when put with the rest it ends up being a rhythm and harmony put in place by God through the Spirit, a song of love in Christ to be sung, danced and lived out in this world.
I do get kind of tired of the notion that only certain ones really hit the notes right or make the right sound. This is so silly. God would have each of us hit the note or make the sound he has for each of us. Without the contribution of each, the song is missing something. When will we really believe this? I'm working on it, both to be willing to do my part and eagerly want each to join in with their part.
