1 Corinthians 12:12-20:

 - Vs. 12 The body is one, many becoming one. The United States Army understands this with their slogan “An army of one.” 

 - Vs. 13 Jews, Greeks, slaves, free.  We can add to the list _____________________. 

 - Vs. 14 You cannot and will not be the church all by yourself. 

 - Vs. 16-18 Illustration of trying to use your foot as a hand. 

 - Vs. 19 Unity is not uniformity. 

 - Vs. 20 Many parts, one body.  How does that work?

 

Keys to "Many Parts, One Body":

 1. We need to restore our families.

 2. We need to see one another with eyes of grace, not judgement (Colossians 3:12).

 3. We need to get rid of the labels (Colossians 3:11).

 4. We need to see the value of one another (Colossians 3:14).

 

Keys to a Christian Family:

 - Husbands love your wives (Ephesians 5:25) 

 - Wives submit to your husbands as unto the Lord (Ephesians 5:22).

 - Children obey your parents (Ephesians 6:2) 

 - Everyone respects, loves and serves one another (Ephesians 5:1-2).

 

Closing: 

 - What is your part in the body? 

 - What labels do you need to peel off of you? Other people? 

      - *Jesus only used the names of people. 

 - Are you in the family of God?
