bible study | lesson 9 | body ministry

The Church is the body of Christ.  To help us to understand our need to work together, the Lord often compares the church to a physical body.  A healthy body is composed of two hands, two feet, etc. and so the body of Christ, though having many members (or parts) yet is one body.  Each Christian is placed into the body at a place God desires.  Some are called to preach, some to really pray, some to exhort, some to give, some to administrate, etc.  This study will help you not only to be aware of the different areas of involvement, but also to encourage you to know where God is calling you.


Ready to Go!

Let’s pray and ask God to make his way clear to us.  As we seek the Lord, we know that He will teach us all things (Jeremiah 29:13)
