God's People

1st Corinthians 12:12-27

One thing you can’t do when you have church at home by yourself is gather.

The Greek word translated as church literally means called out.

The first time it is used it is speaking of the universal Church. (Matt 16:18) (Acts 7:38)

Most of the other times it is used (over 100) it refers to individual local churches.
The church is not just the church when it gathers but especially when it goes.

The parts of the body are not all the same!

If we walk in the Spirit, everybody fits in.

Getting along with others is hard work.

People in general liked what they saw. Acts 2:46-47
