There are different ways to serve but the same Lord to serve. And there are different ways that God works through people but the same God. God works in all of us in everything we do. Something from the Spirit can be seen in each person, for the common good.
(1 Corinthians 12:5-7 NCV)

Putting puzzles together can be a challenge that takes time. There are a variety of puzzle pieces that come in all different shapes and colors. Each piece of the puzzle is designed to fit in it’s own perfect place according to the finished picture that the manufacturer had intended. Some pieces just don’t seem to fit anywhere until other pieces are put together first. With a little effort
persistence pays off to present a beautiful picture to the pleasant surprise of the observer. The Lord has a perfect picture planned for His church that takes some time to build. Believers come in all different shapes and ethnicities. The Lord has created each participant uniquely with talents and abilities for a specific role of service. Some may feel without purpose but their positions will be determined later depending on the developing structure of the church around them over time. The end result will be a pleasant surprise to all the servants of God who persevered over the years to help complete God’s perfect puzzle.
