One Body, Many Parts

Rev. Lane Stephenson

"One Body, Many Parts”

Worship services in the church at Corinth were disorderly and divisive! As part of his effort to bring order out of disorder, Paul uses the simple illustration of the human body to demonstrate that Christ's body - the church - is also one body with many members. His words address two common problems faced in regard to understanding our place in Christ's church: That of underestimating our role and that of overestimating our role. Our sermon series continues this week with 1 Corinthians 12:12-31.
