“What unites us in Christ is far greater than what divides us in the world.”

January 21, 2018

God calls the church a body. This metaphor is powerful in how it describes the unity and diversity of the church. The church, like a body, is united together in our identity and our purpose. Simultaneously the church, like a body, is diverse, with a variety of parts, a variety of gifting, a variety of backgrounds that all form a tapestry displaying the manifold wisdom and beauty of Christ.

Application Questions

1. Why does God call the church a “body”?

2. What is powerful about the kind of unity Christian community is designed to have?

3. How do you see yourself living out “unity in diversity” in your Christian community?

4. How could you pursue unity in diversity more in your Christian community?
