Human Organs Diagram

Human Organs DiagramLike the organs and limbs of a human body, different members in the Household of Faith work best in combination irrespective of their household body status. Though each part is unique, they act together. Saint Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 12.12, "The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts, and though its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ." Like a bicycle wheel, the Body of Christ in the Household of Faith is most effective when its spokes are attached to the Jesus hub, and to their Christian friends at the rim.

No Stars

A Galaxy Forming in the StarsThere are no "stars" in the church for all are of equal status. Doctor Paul Brand (1914-2003) wrote, "In our society, a janitor has little status because he is so replaceable. Thus, we pay the janitor less and tend to look down upon him. But the body's division of labor is not based on status; status is, in fact, immaterial to the task being performed. The body's janitors are indispensable."
