"IT RUNS IN THE FAMILY"
“The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up one whole body. So it is with the body of Christ.” 1 Corinthians 12:12 NLT
1. CONTEND FOR ONENESS!!
"Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much." James 5:16 NASB
2. BEING DIFFERENT DOES NOT MEAN DEFICIENT!!
And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing?.." I Corinthians 12:16-17 NKJV
And the eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you”;...” I Corinthians 12:21 NKJV
3. LEAVE A LASTING LEGACY!!
"On the fifth day of the month, which was in the fifth year of King Jehoiachin’s captivity," Ezekiel 1:2 NKJV
And it came to pass in the twelfth year of our captivity, in the tenth month, on the fifth day of the month, that one who had escaped from Jerusalem came to me and said, “The city has been captured!” Ezekiel 33:21 NKJV
