Sermon: “One Body of Christ” Theme Song: One Bread, One Body
Theme: We are united as the one body of Christ, each called to be a part of the body in love and fellowship.
Purpose: The congregation will seek to support the health and union of the whole body.
Scriptures: 1 Corinthians 12:12-27 You are the body of Christ and individually members of that one body.
John 15:7-17 Jesus commands that we love one another and that love be the center of our relationships (not servants but friends).
What does it mean that we are the one body of Christ? What are the ways in which we are struggling with acceptance of others? In what ways are we encountering a need to growth in diversity? What are the “less honorable” parts of the body? Do we treat the “unseen” and “unappreciated” parts of the body with the honor they deserve? Are there ways in which we have been neglecting to encourage the diversity of the body? What is your part or strength in the body of Christ? What can you do to help the whole body to be healthier?
