Who Are We, Exactly?
June 13, 2021 • Jim Brutocao
We are the Church, and the Church is the Body of Christ. To understand what this means, First Corinthians 12 teaches us 2 fundamentals about who we are, exactly: (1) God Creates the Church Like Organs Within a Human Body (1-13) God Endows Every Member of the Body with Unique Gifts (1-3) God Fashions Each Member for the Common Good (4-11) God Creates Unity out of Diversity (12-13) (2) God Commands the Church to Function Like a Human Body (14-31) Lesser Members Are Needed (14-20) Greater Members Are Needy (21-24a) All Members Need Love (24b-31)
