Passage: 1 Corinthians 12:12-27
The human body is …
The image of the church as the body of Christ reminds us of
- The blessing of our diversity (1 Corinthians 12:12-14). It's about unity, not uniformity.
- The truth of our dignity, every part, all parts are part of the body (1 Corinthians 12:15-20)
- The reality of our mutual dependence, our interdependence, all are important, all are needed. When one suffers or is victorious, we all are. (1 Corinthians 12:21-27)
We have not come to compete with one another.
We have come to complete one another. – Bill McCartney
