The body is joined together in Christ by accepting Jesus as Lord and Saviour of all who receive and confess Jesus died and rose again. Christ tells us to treat Church as a hospital for various treatments and needs. It means the members needs are different so taken into consideration in making provisions for various leaders to be responsible in each department. The many functions of Church are compared symbolically to physical body parts, roles and support for each role played in body. The Bible describes the different roles so says the eye cannot feel superior to the hand or the hand feel that it plays bigger roles than the feet. Each has specific role tailored to their intrisic design by God so cannot complain does better than others in function. Similarly God tells Churches big players who are movers and shakers are equally valued like smallest widow’s mite in God’s Eyes. Each has role to play as much as various gifts, talents, skills, or the abilities required.
