How to Facilitate Unity and Oneness in the Body of Christ

1 Corinthians 12

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.

How to facilitate unity and oneness in the Body of Christ:

– bestow honor on those that do not seem to be strong, attractive or talented.
– realize that people that deserve honor the most often will not take it forcefully, so it should be given.
– realize that some parts have no need for abundant honor, since they already have it.
– resist the urge to separate people on anything other than their purpose and role. There should be no schism in the Body, one banner and one purpose.
