Introduction

In our world today, our differences are often used as a means to create distance between us, even among Christians in the Church. Christians’ lives would not just be interesting without variety to spice them up. Just as the body consists of various parts all working together to achieve different things, Christians are of various races, groupings and undertakings need to unite to achieve the tasks that God has set for them. God created all human as a diverse people and He wants all to unite. That is why he gave human beings different skills and strengths so that Christians would recognize their need for one another and appreciate them individuality. And His love for variety is not just visible in Christians but in all aspects of His creation. Example is the many species in any ecosystem all living in synchrony, or the changing seasons, each allowing for growth and harvest. As a result of all the problems that arise in the church today as a result of diversity, this paper is encouraging unity in diversity by using the exegesis of 1 Corinthians 12:12-26.
