One of the places where I often find people struggling is in the place of being fruitful in their lives. They are part of the body, but they are not functioning. Serving is deeply important to our relationship with God in that when we serve we are developing our gifts and talents given to us by the Spirit, but more importantly we are also developing the fruits of the Spirit which reflect the nature of Christ within us.
Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.
– Romans 12:4-5
