Description

What does unity actually look like in the local church? People often desire to be unified, but they misunderstand unity to mean conformity. 1 Corinthians 12 reveals how the unity God establishes in the church preserves diversity and individuality without allowing differences to produce divisions. The Apostle Paul’s practical text demonstrates to the proud, divisive Christians at Corinth that their common identity in Christ coincides with their distinctiveness as individual believers.

Differences must never lead to divisions, but neither should unity imply uniformity. This exegetical guide practically expresses how we as Christians can live together as a unified community of distinct individuals and thus bring honor and glory to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Editor’s Note: Included within this guide as a bonus is a unique “Exploring the Classics” section, which will allow rich resources from the past to enrich the preaching of the present.
