The Body of Christ
This is part two in our “Relationship Series”. In this blog I am going to do my best to explain our relationship to God as Christ’s body. Even more than that, I'm going to talk about the state of the body and how we can help it become more unified. I’m going to pull a lot of scripture from 1 Corinthians 12 and 13. If you aren’t familiar with these chapters, I highly recommend reading those in partner with this study.
Paul begins chapter 12 by saying that there are many gifts that come from the Holy Spirit, but they are all given by the same Spirit. That one Spirit gives many gifts, but he is still one Spirit. In order to understand the importance of his statements we have to look a little deeper into the church of Corinth.
