BODY IS WHAT YOU ARE PART OF CREATED OR FORMED ?( 1 Corinthians 12:12-26 ) " 12 For as the body is one and has many members, but all members of the body, though many , are one body: so also is Christ . 13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks , whether slaves or free-and we were 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 hand , I am not the body, is it therefore not of the body ? 16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not an eye, I am not 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 just as He pleased .19 If they were all one member, where were the body? 20 But now are they many members, yet one body . 21 And the eye can not say unto the hand, I do not need , nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.22 rather, those members of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, 23 and those of the body that we think less honorable, upon these we bestow more abundant honor , and that we are less respectable members are treated with more decorum. 24 For whereas our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, giving greater honor to the inferior part , 25 that no schism in the body, but the members may have the same care for one others. 26 And whether one member suffer , all the members suffer with it , and if one member is honored , all the members rejoice with it . "
INTRODUCTION1) A good use of terminologies : How many of you this morning told his children or his companions : "Let the Church "? If we think that this expression is equivalent to a " let's go to the temple " , then we have said wrong. If we understand the " let's go to church," something like " go to our meeting with our brothers," then we have come closer to what the word Church means .
2 ) The church is not the form bricks or building materials. The church shapes you . The church is the group of people called by God to join in a single faith, one hope and one love . The reason for this faith , this hope and this love is the message of the Doctrine of Christ that is in his heart to Jesus Christ.
3) And if you 're also at the center of your life to Jesus Christ and his doctrine , then you live in faith in hope and in love of Him , then you have also been called by the Lord God to join the group called the small remnant of all those who have your same mind . (John 7:15-18 ) " 15 And the Jews marveled , saying, How knoweth this man letters , having never learned ? 16 Jesus answered and said, My doctrine is not mine , but his that sent me. 17 If any man do his will , he shall know the doctrine is from God or whether I speak of myself. 18 Whoever speaks on their own, seeketh his own glory : but he that seeks the glory of him who sent him is true, and no unrighteousness is in him . "

4) Several local congregations form a denominational movement , and these groups , along with similar ones in our country and the world for forming the Churches influence with different doctrines based on scriptures from the Word of Jehovah God, which are called and named according to their doctrine , and Jesus did not name his church , but it 's cemented in one doctrine and Training Fitness and sustained throughout the entire bible with biblical context from Genesis to Revelation , and neither have other governing body but Jesus Christ himself, who is the head and chief.
5 ) From this emerges a picture expressed by the Apostle Paul : The Church in the world is a big body whose head, as central to Jesus Christ. Jesus is the one who gives life and rationale for his Church. This applies not only universally , but primarily at the local group of believers and specifically to each and every one of them in particular.
6) then no established church or a building or a government agency , whether local, national , or global , the sets Jesus whose message is inserted into one's life and millions of individuals throughout history, reconciliándoles with the Father , and habilitándoles transforming them to live a new , different and better through his Sound Doctrine Doctrine of Christ call : ( 2 John 1:9 ) " Whosoever transgresseth , and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, not have God that abideth in the doctrine of Christ , he hath both the Father and the Son. "
7) Each of these new persons become part of the body of Christ , are members of it , " grafted " as wild olive branches on a trunk as the apostle Paul expresses . And each member , as part of a body and performs a specific function key . If you practice and live the Doctrine of Christ , entonases you put your faith in Christ as your savior , therefore you are a member of his body. Now, as part of this body , you have duties to perform these duties is serving as participate in the functioning of the body. If any part of a body does not function properly , then the whole body will be affected.
8) The apostle Paul and us are now concerned this situation: parts of the body of Christ feel over others and , worse still , parties feel insignificant . This makes the body of Christ malfunction.
9) Remember the story of Frankenstein , the body of this character was formed of parts that its creator intended them to be perfect to do so a perfect human being in mind and body, but worked well together wrong and the result became not something beautiful or perfect , but a monster .
Let me use this metaphor to confront all we be members of Christ's perfect body in Sana doctrine of Christ ? or shall we be Frankenstein imperfect body members of a body formed by the doctrines of men ? Functional members , renewed by the teachings of Jesus Christ and in the way of perfection make the body of Christ , members dysfunctional , neglected and dying make a body of Frankenstein . From which we are or where we want to be ?

10) The functionality of us as members is given in the proper performance of our duties as members of our church , local, on the one hand but also universal . I refer to three areas in which we must be functional .

1) If you want to be members that work, we regularly attend services , studies and day of prayer in our church with proper disposal . (Acts 2:46,47 ) " 46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple , and breaking bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts , 47 praising God and having favor with all the people . And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved . "
2) ( Acts 20:7 ) "The first day of the week we came together to break bread , Paul preached unto them ." Jesus rose on the first day of the week. Since then his disciples , in his memory , met every day , so history has called Sunday , which means "Lord's Day " .
3) And notice that in the early Church believers not only met the first day, but had activity every day of the week ( Acts 5:42 ) " And daily in the temple and in every house , ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ . " The meetings were and should be now still a cause for celebration for all of us, especially those that celebrate the day of commemoration of the resurrection of Christ.
4) But most of the churches are not only active in the Lord's Day , but also on other days of the week, and even on the Lord's Day afternoon . Want to do something useful and practical to work well as a member of the body of the Lord? Then schedule your participation in the largest possible part of your local church activities .
5) " To attend all the services of your congregation." This duty is often difficult. Especially when we feel dissatisfied either with the very development of the activities or those who gather .
6) Many times this is a reflection of our attitude to what are the meetings of the church is wrong : there we met to see who brings the best dress , or hear how out of tune our brother who is next , much less we met for a preacher to entertain us or to watch a show Sunday .
7) We met because our spirit overflowing feel the need to worship the Lord God has called us to be his people, because we are not isolated individuals but part of a community that feeds their fire at the meeting each other ; we are a group that meets to hear the voice of God through the Word and that join forces to work for what the Lord Jesus Christ asked , the fact that the body of Christ to meet is also an act of faith . In other words : the life and message of Jesus Christ must be present and be central even something that seems as simple as attendance and participation in our meetings.
8) The " stop meeting as some have the custom" cools us , as the embers of a fire that spread of fire makes us neglect our call , making us members can be dysfunctional for the body to which we belong . ( Hebrews 10:24-25 ) " 24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and good works, 25 not neglecting to meet together , as the manner of some , but exhorting one another and so much more , as ye see the day approaching " .
9) This also means that if there is any man crippled by health or age to meet, it is necessary that you do get to where there is the possibility to feed the meeting , so that brother or sister can continue to participate in this commitment and be built .
II. MUST BE FUNCTIONAL IN OUR OWN BUILDING .1) If you want to be functional members , we must ensure a continuous development in our Christian life in all areas . ( Ephesians 2:19-22 ) " 19 So then you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God , 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with the chief cornerstone Jesus Christ himself , 21 in whom the whole building , being fitted together , grows into a holy temple in the Lord, 22 in whom you also are being built together for a habitation of God in the Spirit. "
2) Current vote Christian Endeavor says: ( 1 Peter 2:4-5 ) " 4 Come to him , a living stone , rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious,5 Ye also , as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house , an holy priesthood , to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. "
3) A person who has been released from jail and does not want to go back there , has to strive to live a different life. We have been crucified and risen with Christ. This means that not only were prisoners until dead , and a state of death passed to a state of life, this implies a new way of living , which is built every day. (1 John 3:13-16 ) " 13 Brethren , do not be surprised if the world hates you. 14 We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren . He that loveth not his brother abideth in death. 15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer : and ye know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. 16 By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. "
4) This means each day presenting our bodies a living sacrifice , holy and pleasing to God ( Romans 12:1 ) "Therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God , to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable God , which is your reasonable service " , every day and everywhere , who is wise and understanding among you ? ( Proverbs 28:2 ) " For the transgression of a land many are the princes , but by a man of understanding and knowledge remains stable." - Asked Santiago ( James 3:13 ) "showing the good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom ." If you are the body of Christ , we must live as part of the body of Christ. This covers all areas of our life , are the spiritual (ie , " within the congregation " ) as we call "secular" .
5) In the lives of the secular members also belong to God , we are and act in the world, and is the world to which we testify with our lives. This way of life has been compared to a struggle that the believer has to fight against the forces that oppose the righteousness of God and it is God who sustains and strengthens in this fight.
6) To comply with this duty does not mean anything other than live daily what we already are : followers of Jesus Christ and part of it. Living a Christian life " sincere and active " makes us members of the body that work with the teachings of Christ who came to establish His Church in divine knowledge which unites and does not divide as religions.
1) If you want to be functional members , we must ensure the unity and harmony of the whole church . (John 17:19-23 ) " 19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself , that they also might be sanctified through the truth. 20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word , 21 that they all may be one, as You , Father, are in me and I in thee , that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that you sent me . 22 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them , that they may be one as we are one . 23 I in them and thou in me, that they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them as You have loved Me . "
2) In contexts where it speaks of the church as the body of Christ in the Bible always refers to the unit should be in it . The unity of the local church involves a good exercise of communion , which in turn a reflection of life built on love. ( Ephesians 4:11-16 ) " 11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles , some to be prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ , 13 till we all come in the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God , unto a perfect man , unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: 14 That we henceforth be no children, tossed about by every wind of doctrine , by the sleight of men in their deceitful craftiness the wiles of error , 15 but speaking the truth in love , may grow up in all things into Him who is the head , even Christ: , 16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by every joint with which they help each other , according to the working by which every part does its share grows and builds itself in love " .
3) ( Colossians 3:12-14 ) says: " Put on therefore , as the elect of God , holy and beloved , bowels of mercies , kindness , humility , meekness, and patience, bearing with one another if anyone has a complaint against the other. For as Christ forgave you, so also do ye . And above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection . "
4) It is clear to note that the chapter of love which we live to be accepted by a God who is love ( 1 Corinthians 13:1-13 ) , is given to a church with many spiritual gifts and much activity , which places love exercise first.

5 ) The apostle Paul admonished harshly those who were the cause of strife in the body of Christ, for their unity in spirit must be a visible feature to the world in which the church moves . ( 1 Corinthians 1:10-12 ) " 10 Now I beseech you, brethren , by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and no divisions among you , but that you be united in the same mind and in the same judgment . 11 For I have been informed concerning you, my brethren , by Chloe , that there are contentions among you. 12 But I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul , and I of Apollos , and I of Cephas, and I of Christ. "
6) Obviously , in the unity of the Church all members participate , without exception , not the duty or the pastor or those who already have more time to keep this unit , but each often having to sacrifice our interests to mold them to the interests of Christ. This is what it means ( Galatians 6:2 ) " Bear one another's burdens , and so fulfill the law of Christ " , then remember that Jesus is who also carried our burden .
7) Let us take care of our relationship with all believers , because sometimes even a small comment or a wrong attitude can cause division and disharmony of the body. ( Proverbs 15:18) " A wrathful man stirs up strife, but he who is slow to anger appeases strife ." (Psalm 140:2 ) " And they devise evil in your heart, Every day gathered together for war ." ( Proverbs 29:22 ) " An angry man stirs up strife , and a furious man abounds in transgression ."
8) The development of the unity of the Church does not leave out though the administration of discipline in it therefore not forgave Ananias and Sapphira his attempt to deceive the Holy Spirit . Tolerating without exhorting who lives in constant opposition to the divine will " not cause division " is not allowed in the body of Christ.
9) Therefore, here also comes the care we must make our own Christian life not be divisive , either directly , causing strife, or indirectly , be a source of scandal. ( Isaiah 59:1,2 ) " 1 Behold that was not the Lord's hand shortened to save, nor his ear too dull to hear: 2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God , and your sins have Indeed hide his face from you will not hear " .
10) When we celebrate the Lord's Supper , it must speak to our hearts to be reconciled with Jesus and proclaim his death . But it also calls us to be reconciled with our brother and stand in unity , because our communion with God is visibly manifested in communion with the whole body. This makes us functional members .
CONCLUSION .1) The body of Christ functions when each of the members that compose it properly involved in it . And each of us has its important place in the body of Christ, because we focus our attention on that first are part of it and ultimately depend on Him , and Christ is who we should be faithful .
2 ) Here we all brothers and sisters , no one can go unnoticed and no one can say that their participation is important in building the Kingdom of God , and neither can you not say this. Let's fat or thin , tall or dwarf , ugly or antisocial , although we have a disability in our bodies , or are rich or poor , but do not know about or have only a gift , are a fundamental part of this body and we must take our place as members , fulfilling our homework .
3) In what place can you take ? What should be done? Let me enlist a few examples of areas which require your involvement : in Sunday school as teacher of Vacation Bible School , music , playing an instrument , singing , as a youth counselor or teenagers , make toilet of the congregation or painting their spaces, visit the brothers , open a home studio or in your house , directing the study , in a word, ATTENDING , pARTICIPATING , get up out of your seat ... and PART .
4) The unity of the body even though we're so different is what states that Christ is the head and it is he who gives cohesion to all members . It's like the notes of a musical concert , which are harmonized , each being different, having silences and sounds , which are each placed in place to form a perfect harmony and live with each other , making the walk glorious body , progress , work properly fulfilling our duties each . Brothers Will this work ?
