Functionally DYSfunctional: Week 5
FAMILY: Functionally DYSfunctional
Week 5: Ladder Holders
1 Corinthians 12:12-13, 21-22, Ephesians 4:6
12The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up one whole body. So it is with the body of Christ. 13Some of us are Jews, some are Gentiles, some are slaves, and some are free. But we have all been baptized into one body by one Spirit, and we all share the same Spirit.
1 Corinthians 12:12-13
Reality of Church Family:
Every believer has a different role, but the same goal.
21The eye can never say to the hand, “I don’t need you.” The head can’t say to the feet, “I don’t need you.”
22In fact, some parts of the body that seem weakest and least important are actually the most necessary.
1 Corinthians 12:21-22
No role is insignificant and every role is necessary.
He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love. Ephesians 4:16
The Church family restores what sin robbed from the biological family.
We help others grow by holding their ladder.
