The whole body......




We have been talking about our tongue, mind, heart, hands and feet, all parts of the body, all with their own unique part to play in ensuring the benefit of the whole. The Bible tells us that the same is true with the body of Christ, all parts are equally important. What are we talking about when we say the body of Christ? we are talking about His church, not the building, but the people, the born again, Holy Spirit filled, Bible believing, Jesus glorifying people of God. Every one who is part of the body is important. No-one, and I mean no-one, is more, or less, important than anyone else in the Kingdom of God, Thank you Jesus!


1 Corinthians 12:12-27 New International Version


Unity and Diversity in the Body


12 Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. 13 For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. 14 Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many.


15 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. 16 And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? 18 But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. 19 If they were all one part, where would the body be? 20 As it is, there are many parts, but one body.


21 The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!” 22 On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, 23 and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor. And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty, 24 while our presentable parts need no special treatment. But God has put the body together, giving greater honor to the parts that lacked it, 25 so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. 26 If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.


27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.
