Us vs. Them

"But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. " (1 Corinthians 12:18 )

This Sunday I will be preaching on 1 Corinthians 12:12-31. The picture of the church as "the body" is a familiar one, almost too familiar I'm afraid. I feel that my challenge is to be able to not only preach what this text says, but even more to help us actually live it out. Clearly the Corinthian church was suffering from an "us vs. them" mentality. How do we escape the same attitude and just become "us"? What does it mean to you to be a part of "the body"?
