Week 3—Deepen Internal Values

1 Corinthians 12:26

One of the great benefits of being a part of a Christian community is the gift of accountability. When this is exercised in love, everyone involved experiences growth in Christ. Paul paints a beautiful picture in this verse of how we need each other as we live out what it means to be the Body of Christ. When one member of the body experiences loss or sorrow, it is amazing to see the others surround that person to meet his or her needs of love and compassion. When another member makes the decision to follow Christ with his or her life, the entire body celebrates to the utmost degree. This accountability underscores our need to share in the ups and downs of life. When we do this, the heavy burdens are made lighter and the celebrations are raised to new heights!
