Losing our “swag” in the Body of Christ

Sermon on July 28 by Ron Michener

Scripture: 1 Cor 12:12-31a


  • Fitting in?
  • Can other things “out community” the Church?
  • Unity is linked to humility

1. Body parts . . . with a limp. (see 1Cor 12:12-13 NIV)

  • Many parts, one Spirit!
  • Body parts work together, as with the body of Christ.
  • How and where do you fit in?
  • “Lose your Swag and embrace your limp”
    – Scott Sauls

2. Body Parts need other parts. (1Cor 12:14-26 NIV)
Equal concern among the weak and the strong (see vss. 21-25)
Common suffering/ rejoicing (v. 26)

3. Body parts have gifts. (1Cor 12:27-31a NIV)
Conclusion & Key Idea
Let’s lose our swag, embrace our limp, and find strength with each other for the sake of Jesus!
