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
