Isn't this mirrored wall lovely? I could only get a small portion of it in my picture, but you can just imagine how beautiful it is when it fills an entire wall! The mosaic tile behind it is so intricate,  and it sets the background for the shiny reflective parts.

Do you ever feel as if you are the background, set into a bigger plan but not as important? This just can't be true, because the forefront would never be as definitive, bright and outstanding if the background didn't provide a contrast! Every christian, set into the right place, is just as important as those who are in the limelight.

If one part of the mosaic were missing, it would not be complete, and thus it would not be right! The Bible talks about the whole group of believers as The Body of Christ. If one member is missing, how could it function properly?

" so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others."  {Romans 12:5}

If one member hurts, we all hurt. If one of us rejoices we all rejoice! we ought to be team players and not to ourselves, because that is not how we function. We all need one another as a great orchestra, making melody in our hearts, to The King of Kings. It is all for the purposes of God, being fulfilled on the earth that we must stand for.  We need to build each other up, in love, even those who are unlovely. Only the love of Christ can overcome bitterness, hatred and rejection that is so prevalent in our society today. Let the love of Christ flow out of you to some hurting, angry person today. "A soft answer turns away wrath, but grievous words stir up anger."  {Proverbs 15:1 }
