Building the Body of Christ: The Church

As we begin the New Year and the ordinary time of the year, it is providential that we are given 1 Corinthians 12 as the second reading for this Sunday and next Sunday. It is worthy that we remind ourselves and reflect on it as we continue to build our parish as a community of believers, members of Christ’s body, the church.
Christ is the head of the Church His body, and we are all members. This bonding into the one body of Christ is brought about by the action of the one Spirit irrespective of our origin, state of life, or personality (see 1 Corinthians 12:13). Our baptism binds us into a holy entity, because Christ the head of the Church is holy. This presents to us a unique privilege to belong to a holy body in spite of our unfaithfulness and imperfections. But, at the same time, because we are members of the body, we are called to function as such.
St. Paul compares the Church, the body of Christ to the human body, where each part has a role to play to keep the body fit and functional (see 1 Co-rinthians 12). St. Paul argues that the wellbeing of the body is radically depend-ent on the cooperative functionality of all the parts, and no part can really say it is indispensable, and hence does not need any of the other parts. Similarly, the non-functioning of any of the parts affects the general wellbeing of the entire body. In simple terms, all parts of the body need to work together in harmony in order to have a healthy body. God so made it that each of the parts is endowed with the capability to execute specific function for the wellbeing of the entire body. They are gifts to the body and not something to be boastful about.
So, it is with the Church, the Body of Christ. God has therefore endowed members of the church with all sorts of gifts to guarantee a vibrant and healthy church faith-ful to her mandate. And so, in the church “God has designated [some people to be] first apostles; second, prophets; third teachers; then mighty deeds; then gifts of healing, assistance, administration, and varieties of tongues” (1 Cor. 12:28). The list is endless because God’s gifts are limitless. The Parish assumes a perfect representation of the Church, the body of Christ; and so whatever is said about the church, we must have the parish in mind.
Therefore, in our parish God has graciously brought us together as individuals bound together by our baptism. And God has endowed each of us special gifts for the use of building the parish in order for it to exercise her mission and ministry. The parish therefore needs you to bring your gifts to bear in the building of the body of Christ here at Harbor Beach and Helena. Never you deny yourself this opportunity and privilege to make use of your gifts, talents, and endowments for God. Do not fall into the trappings of daily excuses (which apparently are legiti-mate) like, ‘I don’t have time, my job is taking a toll on me, I need to be with my family, I need to take care of business.’ Do not be like those persons in Luke 14:15ff invited to the wedding feast who said, "‘I have purchased a field and must go to examine it’ … ‘I have purchased five yoke of oxen and I am on my way to evaluate them’ … ‘I have just married a woman, and therefore I cannot come’”, and miss a grace-filled opportunity. Indeed, using our gifts in the service of God in our Parish and building a church capable of accomplishing her mission is a grace-filled opportunity that you would not want to miss for any-thing in the world. And finally, in the words of St. Peter, “Each one of you has received a special grace, so, like good stewards responsible for all these different graces of God, put yourselves at the service of oth-ers” (1 Peter 4:10ff). let us be mindful of this as we match into the new year.
