Passage: 1 Corinthians 12:12-27
Author: Rev. W. Reid Hankins, M.Div.
Sermon originally preached during the Morning Service at Trinity Presbyterian Church (OPC) on 01/27/2008 in Novato, CA.
The last several weeks we have been talking about Christ’s vision for his church. We’ve talked a lot about the ministry of the church. We’ve said that this ministry needs to be an ordinary means of grace ministry. And one thing that has been a bit assumed as we’ve talked about the church is that the church is made up of members. A biblical vision of the church sees that the church is made up of believers who are united together in Christ. Paul in this passage gives us a picture of biblical church membership, using the illustration of the human body.
