Church---It does the "BODY" good

*

I Cor 12:12-27

*

12: For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

13: For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

14: For the body is not one member, but many.

15: If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?

16: And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?

17: If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?

18: But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.

19: And if they were all one member, where were the body?

20: But now are they many members, yet but one body.

21: And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.

22: Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:

23: And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.

24: For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked:

25: That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.

26: And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.

27: Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
