Real Life Discipleship Overview

1 Corinthians 12:14-20
The National Football League has millions of viewers who watch the games each week. If you’re fortunate, you have attended one or more games. Most watch via their televisions. It’s a multi-billion dollar business. Few actually get to play the game. In our world, football is primarily a spectator sport. Who is your favorite player? Have you ever met this person? Have you ever met any NFL player?

Many high school and college athletes dream of one day playing in the NFL under the bright lights, making the big money. For most, a dream is all it will be.

“God placed the members, each one of them, in the body, just as he desired” (12:18). If Jesus Christ is your Savior, you are on God’s team, the church. The Bible calls it a body. And on God’s team, he expects everyone to play.
