INTRODUCTION. Have you ever paid close attention to a football team playing offense? As soon as the ball is snapped, everyone on the offense moves. It may be nothing more than a routine running play, but every position plays a part in the success or failure of the play. On a football team, every position is important. In a very real sense, this same level of participation should characterize the church. This week’s lesson presents an analogy of the human body to teach an important lesson about spiritual gifts. Just as each member of a football team works together and is necessary, so the proper functioning of each part of the human body (even the seemingly insignificant ones) contributes to the health of the body. The same idea applies to the church. Our lesson will stress the importance of believers maintaining spiritual unity as we minister our gifts to encourage one another in the church.
