Have you ever had a car break down? A car has many parts that make it run effectively—like an engine, transmission, brakes, and electrical system. Each one of these things may look or seem small in comparison with the body of the car, but they have a large effect on its function when they stop working. Compare this to what the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 12 about the body of Christ. In this chapter, Paul explains how we all have a connection to each other in our community as the body of Christ; when some of us are unhealthy, it affects us all.
