Belonging to the Body



Belonging to the Body


In the Flesh


Brady Herbert




One of the primary and reoccurring images we see throughout the New Testament when describing the Church—or the people of God—is the image of a human body. This metaphor is an important one because it builds upon the fundamental belief in Jesus coming “in the flesh” in the Incarnation. It is also important because the body is a picture of what unity in diversity looks like. The body, as the Apostle Paul says, is made up of different parts, but is also one. This is the case for the Church, as well. In Romans 12, Paul shows how we are collectively called to reflect the image of our triune God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in loving community) through the way we relate to one another. Paul says we are to each fulfill our unique role and realize that we each belong to the body.
