Lesson Number 36

Background Notes

Doctrinal Point(s)

  1. The godly believer practices the biblical concept of body life by:
    a. realizing that you aren't the only member of the body
    b. realizing that you are a body member, not a club member
    c. realizing that you are a gifted member of the body

Practical Application

  1. Ask not what the body can do for you, but what you can do for the body.

  2. Paul was called to be an apostle, especially to which group of people?
  3. To whom was revealed the great truth that the church is the body of Christ?
  4. Who is the head of the church?
  5. Who are the members of the body?
  6. Who is needed for the proper functioning of the body?

  2. The Gentiles
  3. The Apostle Paul
  4. Jesus Christ
  5. Those who are believers in Jesus Christ
  6. Every believer


  1. Believers are to minister as good stewards one to another. Review the list of gifts given to believers in Romans 12, 1 Corinthians 12, Ephesians 4 and 1 Peter 4. Select one of these gifts that you believe God has given to you. How did you discern and develop this gift?
  2. How involved are you in using your gift(s) to build up the body of Christ?


  1. Ask not what the body can do for you, but what you can do for the body.
