Identity in Christ: You are welcomed into a community

1st Corinthians 12:12-13 says, “For as the body is one and has many parts, and all the parts of that body, though many, are one body—so also is Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free—and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.”

Then in verses 26-27 we see the words, “So if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it. Now you are the body of Christ, and individual members of it.” (HCSB)

In the family of God, we share each other’s burdens and rejoice with each other’s victories. Everyone has a different role to play in the body, but those roles are equally important.
