THE CHURCH, EVERY PART IS IMPORTANT.
1 Corinthians 12:14-18
From The Theme of the BibleInstitute:
The church, a Body of Many Parts
How important are you in the church, the body of Christ? Some one wrote “God bears the world’s weight on his shoulders, yet holds His children in the palm of his hand.
The city of Corinth was a principle city of the Roman Empire. Corinth was a major cosmopolitan city, a seaport and major trade center, the most important city in the country of Achaia. Corinth a city of 400,000 people, filled with idolatry and immorality. Slave girls were used as prostitutes and entertainers of the night life.
But regardless to its wickedness with God’s help, in the time of a year and 6 months, the Apostle Paul, manage to establish a church largely made up of Gentiles.
Paul preached and taught with spiritual authority on many topics, but as we engage the text, Paul talks about the church, the body of Christ, that every part in important.
