In the Church there are just a few Pauls, Peters, Luthers, Knoxes,  Wesleys, Whitefields & Beechers - but back of them is the great army of the humble, but faithful workers & ministers, most of whom toil in unknown places; elders & Sunday school workers.

Paul always went out of his way to recognize those faithful friends & workers who helped him to do his work & he is proud to speak of them as his fellow soldiers of Christ: Epaphroditus, whose name means "charming," & who brought the gift of the church of Philippi to Paul when he was in prison at Rome & all the others, whose names, Paul says, are in the Book of Life, written there as clearly as the name of Paul himself.

1 Cor 12:22 &27 (GNT): “On the contrary, we cannot do without the parts of the body that seem to be weaker… All of you are Christ's body, and each one is a part of it.”

“Grace, like water, flows to the lowest part.” -  Philip Yancey.
