Belonging Together

1 Corinthians 12:12-31  (ID: 1368)

How do we understand the Body of Christ? Paul used the body as metaphor for what Christian churches should look like. While each member of a congregation has a different function, all members are necessary. Alistair Begg calls listeners to a right understanding of the local church and each person’s role in it. Understanding our function as parts of the Body, we are called to fellowship marked by unity and selfless living.


One Body with Many Members

12For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.
