Saturday, October 8

The body is one but has many members.—1 Cor. 12:12.


What a privilege we have to be part of Jehovah’s congregation! We are in a spiritual paradise that is full of peaceful, happy people. What is your place in the congregation? The apostle Paul compared the congregation to the human body. He also compared the individuals in a congregation to parts of the body. (Rom. 12:4-8; 1 Cor. 12:12-27; Eph. 4:16) One lesson we can learn from Paul’s illustration is that each one of us has an important place in Jehovah’s family. Paul begins his illustration by saying: “Just as we have in one body many members, but the members do not all have the same function, so we, although many, are one body in union with Christ, but individually we are members belonging to one another.” (Rom. 12:4, 5) What was Paul’s point? Each one of us has a different role in the congregation, but each one of us is valuable. w20.08 20 ¶1-2; 21 ¶4

You can't walk with God while holding hands with the Devil.

        Jehovah loves me. 


Satan wants me to give up in the fight to do what is right. He wants me to believe that Jehovah does not love me, that I am not worth saving. But nothing could be further from the truth. I am a precious treasure in his eyes. 

As a servant of Jehovah, We are all unique and valued member of his diverse family. Jehovah did not draw me to himself because I was better than my neighbors. He drew me because he looked into my heart and saw a meek and teachable person whom he could mold. (Ps. 25:9) I'm assured that he appreciates it when I do my best  (Luke 8:15). In spite of personal weaknesses, trials, and tribulation, if we continue to give Jehovah give our best. Then we will have good reason to rejoice “in regard to [myself] alone.”
