Title: The Body Is Not One Member But Many (I Corinthians 12:12-26)

To coincide with the commemoration of a group of congregants making a commitment to become members of LFCC, and the celebration of Sunday school graduates taking the next step to serve in the Church, Pastor Troy Billow explains the importance of becoming a member by expounding on Paul's analogy of the parts of the body in I Corinthians 12:12-26. The body of Christ is a group of people serving as one to present Christ to the world. Paul uses the analogy of the hands, the feet, the eyes, ears, and so forth to build a picture of where people's specialties lie in terms of talents & commitments to service, and how important and unique every form of service is as we present Christ to the world. This message will reveal how important it is, from Paul's perspective to now (which is still being practiced), how commited people with various talents and specialties, all work together to complete one purpose as a body, and that is to show Christ in action through the acts of service.
