Read

The Body Of Christ1 Corinthians 12:12–14 (NKJV) 12 For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ. 13 For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free—and have all been made to drink into one Spirit. 14 For in fact the body is not one member but many.

Church Begins With More Than 1

NKJV ““Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.”“For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.””

2-3 Begins Church

Ask- Pray

The Church Is meant to pray together each otherVideoActs 12:5 NKJV “Peter was therefore kept in prison, but constant prayer was offered to God for him by the church.” NKJV “And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.” Enemy Of the ChurchWe Fight Against (NKJV) 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. (NKJV) 10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. (NKJV) 4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.

We Need Each Other

Each part of the human body compliments the rest of the body.Each individual member of the church is meant to compliment the rest of the church/communityGifts- Charisma- Spiritual , Supernatural gifting. Miraculous Abilities9 Gifts of the Spirit- Word of Wisdom, Word of Knowledge, Faith, Healing s, Miracles, Prophecy, Discerning, Different Tongues, Interpretation of TonguesMy Role Isn't Important I Don’t Need The Church/ Self SufficiencyI’m More Important than The RestI Don’t Have A Part To Play OffenceMatthew 18:15–17 (NKJV) The Offended Brother 15 “Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother. 16 But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more, that ‘by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.’ 17 And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector. Offence Builds Walls (NKJV) 19 A brother offended is harder to win than a strong city, And contentions are like the bars of a castle. New Testament ConfrontationGalatians 6:1 (NKJV) 6 Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. Trespass- Intentional or Unintentional

Diversity

A body with missing parts is called handicappedA body with no eyes is blindA body with no ears is deaf A Church with missing parts is dysfunctional and handicapped Ministries- role or position of serviceActivities- a working, activity, deed (NIV) 18 But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. to design gifts

Same Spirit-

They come from the same place- sourceSame purpose, strategy, plan, directionThey are not at odds with or going in opposite direction or purposeThey don't bring division or disunity.Each gift will agree with the other1 Corinthians 12:6–7 (NIV) 6 There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.

Each One

7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. Everybody Has Spiritual Gifts

For The Common Good

NKJV- for the profit of all Win Win- Everybody Benefits
Not I win you lose
