Believers Are One in Christ
Bible Verse 1st Corinthians 12:11-12, 14
But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills. For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ. For in fact the body is not one member but many.
As followers Jesus we are all one body, that is to say we are all one family in Christ Jesus our Lord. But how is that? How does God make us all one body? First we all become children of God, brothers and sisters through our faith in Jesus. In addition God makes us joint-heirs with Christ when we accept Jesus, so we inherit God's kingdom together as one family. Therefore first all of us enter into the same family. Second we are indwelt by the Holy Spirit who begins a work of sanctification in our hearts when we accept Jesus. And it's through the Holy Spirit's work of sanctification where he changes our hearts and works in our lives that we come together in one accord and for one purpose as one body in Christ.
That purpose is to praise and honor our King! To praise our saving God, Christ Jesus the Lord! And because of this one love we all share God has made each of us part of the same family of God which is the church. All of us working together to do His will in our lives. This happens because God has a special purpose for all those who have placed their faith in Jesus alone for salvation. Jesus Himself gives gifts to each believer to be used within the fellowship of believers which is the church. These gifts are for the edification, spiritual growth and care of all God's children. In addition God through His Holy Spirit places a desire within our hearts to help those in the world around us and to seek out the lost and bring them to the saving knowledge of Jesus.
