Kurosaki: the great Conductor

Tuesday, October 14, 2014
    Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. And in the church God has appointed first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, also those having gifts of healing, those able to help others, those with gifts of administration, and those speaking in different kinds of tongues.
    —1 Corinthians 12:27-28 (NIV)
    God is the great Conductor, and the individual members of the orchestra [namely, the whole body of Christ] each play their varying parts on different instruments; but if all follow the Conductor the whole composition will be a complete and beautiful symphony in perfect harmony.
    ... Kokichi Kurosaki (1886-1970), One Body in Christ, Kobe, Japan: Eternal Life Press, 1954, ch. 5 (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 12:12-31; John 17:20-21; Rom. 12:4-8; 1 Cor. 1:10; 10:16-17; Eph. 3:6; 4:3-13; 5:19-20; Col. 3:15; 1 Pet. 3:8
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, help me to honor the many roles to which You have appointed Your people.
