"For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body... Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many" —1 Cor 12:13-14.
Our reading today came from 1 Corinthians 12:13-31. Apostle Paul was a master teacher. As he was admonishing the church of Corinthians to be in one Spirit in serving the Lord, he used the story to bring the point home. The story he used was the human body.
He portrayed the church as a human body wherewith the body parts were interconnected one with another. Hand couldn't boast itself, eyes couldn't either. All body parts must work together for one goal. The same with the church, everybody has their own jobs in the church with one goal, which is to glorify God.
May we as God's people in His church, work together to bring glory and honor to His name by doing our parts in the local church. May God bless and keep us.
