1 Corinthians 12:27-28
Now you are the body of Christ,& each one of you is a part of it. 28 & God has placed in the church first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, of helping, of guidance,& of different kinds of tongues.
So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors & teachers,12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith & in the knowledge of the Son of God & become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
1 Peter 2:17
Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor.
How good & pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity!
For just as each of us has one body with many members,& these members do not all have the same function,5 so in Christ, we, though many, form one body,& each member belongs to all the others.
There is one body & one Spirit-just as you were called to one hope when you were called-one lord, one faith, one baptism; one God & Father of all who is over all & through all & in all.
The king will reply, "truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers & sister of mine, you did for me.'
& lets us consider how we may spur one another on toward love & good deeds,25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another-& all the more as you see the Day approaching.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as meme era of one body you were called to peace. & be thankful.
