Body of Christ
Bible Reading: 1 Corinthians 12:12-27
Monday, September 22, 2014
Paul taught these Christians the right way to think about each other. He compared the church to a person’s physical body. A person’s body has many parts that all work together. All parts of the body are important so that the body can work well. In the same way, everyone in the church has an important job to do. “All of you together are the body of Christ. Each one of you is a part of that body” (verse 27).
Remember that every person in your church is important. Thank God today for what you can do to strengthen and build His church. — SH*
“God put the parts in the body as he wanted them. He made a place for each one. So there are many parts, but only one body.” 1 Corinthians 12:19b-20
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I want to help the church grow. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
