Robert Fitts sent out an article entitled "I Am Not An Eye." In it he says that in finding our identity within the Body of Christ we must:
1. Seek not a place of prominence or influence. If it comes, do not run from it. Take your place as an eye if God has gifted and called you to be an eye.
2. Seek not a "ministry" but rather seek to minister. The world is full of people who need help. The spirit of a true servant does not clamor for recognition. A servant does not need a stage or a spotlight to do his work. He only needs to love God and be willing to spend and be spent serving others...
So the very first step in discovering our place and function within the Body of Christ is to renounce all self will and self determination and trust God to produce in us the divine motivation to function according to His predetermined purposes that He has ordained for us.
