WHERE DO YOU FUNCTION IN THE BODY?

March 6, 2021

This week I had the opportunity to do a seminar titled “Saturate your soil, seed, and soul with praise, worship, and thanksgiving.” In preparing for the presentation, the Holy Spirit directed me to focus on the human body’s anatomy and physiology. While studying and researching, the Holy Spirit ministered to me about the tissues in the body in a revelatory manner. So, today I am going to share aspects of the revelation in this blog.

The body comprises four kinds of tissue: the epithelium, muscle, connective, and nervous tissues, and each of these tissue groupings was designed to perform various functions. As I studied them and looked at their function in the natural, I saw a spiritual application. It was an aha moment.

The epithelium tissue’s primary function is that of protection. This is what is known as the human body’s outer skin, and it covers all that is beneath; it leaves nothing exposed. When there is a wound in the skin over time, the epithelium heals itself and closes up the area that has been exposed to outside elements. To me, the epithelium tissues represent the intercessors in the body of Christ. They are the ones that keep the church protected thru their unceasing prayers. If they stopped functioning, the enemy would invade, and when there is a breach, it is through the prayers of the intercessors that which the enemy attacked and taken is restored.

The muscle tissue is responsible for body movement. This tissue represents the workers, the ministry’s hands and feet, and without them, the church would be dormant. They are the lifters, and they are the movers. They are the ones that help things to be accomplished.

In the body, the connective tissue not only connects and attaches but it supports, protects, and stores nutrients. I see these tissues representing those that exhort, edify and give comfort. They are the ones that hold the people together, making sure all have the necessary support, and none fall thru the cracks.

Lastly, the nervous tissues conduct impulses throughout the body from organ to organ via neurons. I believe the nervous tissue represents the command center. These are the leaders and administrators that give the instructions making sure all are in their place and fulfilling their assignment.

As you can see, all of the four tissues are needed for the body to function correctly. It reminds me of Paul’s scripture in Ephesians 4:16, which I will incorporate below using several translations, but before I do that, let me ask you this question. Which tissue are you, and are you functioning properly? If you can answer yes, good; if not, read these scriptures and allow them to motivate you to do what you are supposed to do.

“From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.” (King James Version)

“Under his direction, the whole body is fitted together perfectly, and each part in its own special way helps the other parts, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.” (Living Bible)

“From Him the whole body [the church, in all its various parts], joined and knitted firmly together by what every joint supplies, when each part is working properly, causes the body to grow and mature, building itself up [a]in [unselfish] love.” (Amplified Bible)
