1 Corinthians 12:12-18; 25-27
Much needs to be done in this world. No one person can do it all, but as the members of the Body of Christ put their various Gifts of the Spirit and their Graces (or aptitudes) into service to God, we can all do something and accomplish God’s will for the ONE BODY and beyond.
We are ONE BODY in Christ. We rely upon the Spirit of the Living God. Our founder, Christ Jesus, is still with us. The church is a COVENANT COMMUNITY. It’s members are part of a living relationship, and they, in turn are indispensable to the body. For the person in whom Christ dwells, being ACTIVELY INVOLVED in the church is not merely an option.
