I Am The Church
What Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 12:13, “For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body”, he is stating the neccesity of unity and diversity in the church to which we are all a part and responsible. As a work of the Spirit, salvation and the alive, functioning church are one in the same. We are baptized so as to form the one body.
What is your part? How necessary is the church to your life with the Spirit? I would say most necessary. How necessary are you to the church? I would say most necessary! I hope that today’s sermon works to clarify and challenge you to live out your salvation and your responsibility to the church.
