Red and White Blood Cells! We are more than one thing!
1. Every believer is a red blood cell within the body of Christ. (One drop)
2. Every congregation is one vein in the body of Christ. (Likewise for families and ministries)
3. Within each vein, flow the life of Jesus and nourish the body of Christ.
4. Every believer is a white blood cell. (One drop)
5. Every believer can and should function as a red and white blood cell.
6. If we think we are only one thing we will not do the other things God says we are.
7. We need to know who we are to know what to do. Our identity removes confusion.
8. During the day as we flow with the Holy Spirit, we can tell which cell we are.
9. The reason we can be both is because God defines His children having different functions. We can see this in Acts 6:1-7, Romans 12, 1 Corinthians 12 and Ephesians 4. These portions of God's word, reveal distinctions and functions. (Differences and purposes) Bottom line, all those in Christ Jesus are more than one thing!
