Particular Significance to Paul 196

Body's Complete Ministry

amazing graceThe pool of gifted persons in the Household of Faith ebbs and flows as Christians leave and others take their place. The Household Faith harmony however is not effected. Newly acquired skills and training matures us little by little spiritually, and so the harmony develops. A sudden death precipitates an imbalance as if a hand had been amputated. The group later reforms to the new reality without that person and so the body's complete ministry re-emerges and Household harmony continues.✞

Newly Acquired Skills

Six Babies looking UpThe frailer parts of the Household of Faith have a particular significance. Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 12.21, "These parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable." In the Household of Faith, children have a particularly special place and are honored there. Jesus emphasized this when his followers tried to discourage mothers from bringing their babies to him but Jesus insisted on blessing them.✞
