A Small Part

ww-asmallpartNo! No! Not now!

It can’t go out now!

I really need the air conditioner!

The weather is scorching

Humid and hot

Break out the fans

Stay as cool as possible

Call the repairman

Two days?

Come as quickly as possible

So glad to see you!

Estimates and evaluations

Comes down to a very small part

A tiny valve – One inch by a quarter-inch

Small, seemingly insignificant

And yet…

So vital, so necessary

Making the air conditioner operational

Otherwise… it is unusable, ineffective

What a small part can do!

In the hands of a competent repairman

Bringing new life to a nonworking mechanism

Aaaah! Cool refreshing air!

All is working well!

In what ways are you a small part?

Vital and necessary – Useable and effective

What part do you play in the family of God?


God has a plan and a purpose

For each person’s life

As loved by God

A place of service fit for you

A useful, significant role with His purpose in mind

As part of the family of God

Like a nut on a bolt

Perfectly suited for you

Fulfilling God’s purpose for your life

Utilizing your gifts and talents

To the glory of God!


A teacher!

A greeter!

An usher!

But not a pew duster!

A small part!

Vital, needed and necessary

As part of God’s body of believer’s

The body of Christ

In service to our glorious Lord

What small part will you play?

To the praise of His glory!


· I Corinthians 12:12-31 – Now you are the body of Christ and each one of you is a part of it.
· Ephesians 4:1-16 – From him (Christ) the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.
· Colossians 3:12-17, 23 – Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men,…
