Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ 1Corinthians 12:12
When you think of the Church, what comes to mind? A building? The original Greek word used in scriptures is “Ekklesia” which means “congregation”, So when we refer to “The Church” we are referring to an assembly of Christians.
Just as the above scriptures states, “The Church” has many different people, with different backgrounds and personalities. But we are all one thru Jesus Christ.
Now if the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. 1 Corinthians 12:15
When you bring many people together, personalities start to clash. But just as a successful team, everyone needs to learn there roles, and contribute there talents and strengths
Just like the foot is no more important than the hand, everyone is important. Everyone plays a critical role for a successful Church.
so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. 1 Corinthians 12:25
As Jesus taught us, a house divided among itself will fail. Satan wants to divide “The Church”, in order to have a strong Church , there must be unity. Gossip and slander are just cracks in the foundation that begin the division of “The Church”
If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it. 1 Corinthians 12:26
When a member of your Church is suffering, we are all suffering. For “The Church” is one. We rejoice when another member is blessed and we mourn when a member is going thru trials.
Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. 1 Corinthians 12:27
We The Church is one body, therefor when any part suffers, the whole Church suffers. No part is greater than the other. A thriving Church is a united healthy Church.
Don’t let division infect your Church, you are all one body of Christ. Stand united as We are the Church in Jesus name Amen
