Gateways For The Kingdom
Partners Working With The King

Read 1 Cor.12

Everything is made from the mind of the most Advanced and Intelligent being.
Creation is made up of an incredible diversity and yet an incredible Interdependancy
Everything made is made to work together in order to function
Example- Rain falls and waters the earth. Plants need water
Animals and People need Plants
The sun warms the earth and water evaporates into clouds
Plants produce oxygen- humans breath oxygen and produce carbon dioxide- plants take the carbon dioxide and turn it into oxygen.
Creation is designed by God to produce interdependence
The same mind behind creation said he will build His Church.
Independence- modern society has produced a culture of individualism and isolation
Look after number one
Australia once was a nation that was reliant on Interdependency
You knew your neighbor
You needed your nieghbour to survive
You helped your neighbor
That understanding was deeply imbedded in church culture
The understanding that they were a community
Not an institution
Not a club
A community
People committed to caring and looking after each other
The Term Brother or Sister implied family.
Individualism and Isolation has snuck into the modern church
It still amazes me how easily offence is taken and people leave the family/ community
The Body-
Diversity- Many Members- One Body
Diversity in Creation- Diversity In The Church
Many members to a body- To a Church
One Body One Church
Jigsaw Illustration
A piece missing ruins the picture
A piece in the wrong place??
A body with missing parts is called handicapped
A body with no eyes is blind
A body with no ears is deaf
A Church with missing parts is disfunctional and handicapped
Co-dependence and interdependence are two very different dynamics.
Co-dependence is about giving away power over our self-esteem. . . . Interdependence is about making allies, forming partnerships. It is about forming connections with other beings."
Gifts- Charisma- Spiritual , Supernatural gift.
kkkk
The New Revised Standard Version One Body with Many Members

18 But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose.

(NIV) 18 But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.
