Unity in the Body: What a Miracle! - 1 Cor. 12
Paul picks up a common illustration of his day to point out the fact that even with the miracle of Jesus Christ in our lives, it takes the enacting power of individuals to commit themselves to make an organism, just as it does to take this organization work, because we have been called from varying backgrounds, giving varying abilities, to be used in varying ways, for the maximum glory of God. And that's the only way, it can be all powerful, but also has wrapped within it the seeds of friction.
