Putting it All Together
1 Corinthians 12:15-16 NKJV..."If the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body," is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear should say, "Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body," is it therefore not of the body?" If you've been alive for any amount of time, you've probably witnessed the strange things people will do to be "unique". Between hairstyles...clothes or body art, people want to be noticed for their differences. Any church that is living biblically will not be a factory of sameness. God's Word describes the body of Christ as different people with unique talents and abilities coming together with a single purpose in mind. He has created each and every one of us with special gifts that can be used for His glory. So instead of seeking out differences to hold against each other, let us use our differences in an effort to build God's Kingdom. Christian unity...does not mean uniformity or "sameness". Think about it like this....A puzzle is made up of many pieces...of many shapes...many sizes....and many colors...you just have to put them in the right places to complete it.
