For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. - Romans 12:4–5 (ESV) Internet quizzes are weird. I've never really wanted to know what 'character from Star Wars' I am, or how my pronunciation identifies my background, or what vegetable matches my personality. If there was one that helped me identify what part of the body of Christ I am, I might take it. However, I fear it might finally verify that I'm a nose hair or meniscus (whatever that is). One of the reoccurring pictures in the New Testament for the church is the body. It's independent, yet dependent connections make it the perfect illustration to show we are put together as God's people. This week Paul is going to point us back to that idea. It will remind us of our need for humility and dependence as we continue to grow. Take a few minutes to read through Romans 12 to prepare your heart and mind for these truths. We will have the chance to celebrate communion together as an act of corporate worship. Plan to join us and bring someone along. See you at 10:30.
