Today’s Battle Drill Devotional: You are an Important Part of the Jigsaw Puzzle


Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. (Philippians 2:4)


Read Philippians 2:1-11. The church – or your Salvation Army corps – is like a jigsaw puzzle. Each piece fits together into a unified whole, and when it is complete, then it is beautiful.


If you are missing, then that beautiful picture is marred. It is incomplete. Your presence and your service is essential. Every ministry is important. Nothing is insignificant.


Those ministries that are “up front” like preaching and music are no more important than those that take place behind the scenes, like administration, finance, even cleaning the building. In fact, it’s often the behind the scenes ministries that make the biggest difference. Your church or corps would quickly cease to function if its finance wasn’t kept in order!


Every act of service matters because we all depend on each other to function effectively. So don’t be a spectator, get involved! Do something. Take your place. Ensure that your part of the picture is filled. God is calling you to service. Will you listen and do whatever he asks you to do?
