"So in Christ we are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others."(Romans 12:5)
a. We are connected through faith.
"There is one body and one Spirit-Just as you were called to one hope when you were called-one Lord,
one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all."
b. We are connected through meeting together.
"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one
another-and all the more as you see the Day approaching."(Hebrew 10:25)
c. We are connected through loving one another.
"By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."(John 13:35)
d. We are connected through service.
"It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be
pastors and teachers, to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be
built up."(Ephesians 4:11-12)
