About WestWay:
Our mission is simple: we want to proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord. We're growing in three ways: our unity, our purpose and our love. This happens because of the power of the Holy Spirit. God is glorified. Lives are changed. People grow in their relationships with God and with others. We're glad you're here!

Series Overview and Additional Resources

How does the Bible “work”? What is it’s purpose? Where did it come from? How did we get it? Can we trust it? What does it mean for me? Join us as we wrestle with these (and other) questions as we survey the entire Bible together.

The church is the body of Christ. Like any body, the church is made of up many parts; like the body, each of us has a role and a responsibility to function together in a way that glorifies the head and demonstrates unity.

This week we’ll continue our conversation about How the Bible Works to Teach Us about the Church Age.
God wants His body to be at least three things:

1- Holy and Pure: 1 Peter 1:14-16, Philippians 2:14-16
2- Display Unity: John 17:20-21, Ephesians 4:3
3- Love One Another: (1 John 3:11, 18, 23)
Questions about the Sermon or Anything Else?
Text QUESTION to 308-252-3273 and we will address them in our Tuesday Q&A Facebook Live video on Tuesdays at 11:15. The texts are anonymous to us and the public.
Additional Questions for Your Family, Small Group or in a Bible Study:
A church is a living body of Christ with many members (1 Corinthians 12:7-21). He puts it together as he wants and all of us together are a part of it; together we make the church.

Members of a church are uniquely related to every other member of the church (1 Corinthians 12:22-31). We are not autonomous and independent of one another. Many Christians think their walk with God is independent of anyone else and they are not accountable to the church. It's true Christians have direct access to God through Christ. However, God created the church as his redemptive agent in the world. He has a purpose for the church. God places every member in a church to accomplish his redemptive purposes through that congregation. The church depends on every member in order to live a normal, healthy church life.

God is more interested in who a church is than in what a church does. God wants His people to:
1- Be holy and pure (1 Peter 1:14-16, Philippians 2:14-16).
2- Display unity (John 17:20-21, 23, Ephesians 4:3).
3- Love one another (1 John 3:11, 18, 23).

For Discussion:

A church is a living body of Christ with many members (1 Corinthians 12:7-21).

Who receives spiritual gifts in the church?
Why does the Holy Spirit give gifts to every believer?
Why is it that the Spirit gives the gifts? Why did he alone decide which gifts the members of the body should have?
Talk about a time when you’ve thought, “I don’t belong because I can’t (blank) like (blank)."

Members of a church are uniquely related to every other member of the church (1 Corinthians 12:22-31).
What are some tasks that seem “the weakest and least important” at WestWay?
How are they the most necessary?
How does harmony happen within the body of Christ?
Talk about a time when serving was “beneath you”?

Evaluate WestWay’s faithfulness to Being Holy & Pure (1 Peter 1:14-16, Philippians 2:14-16), Unified (John 17:20-21, 23, Ephesians 4:3), and Loving (1 John 3:11, 18, 23).
How do you see these things at WestWay? How does (or not) WestWay demonstrate these things? How can we grow in them?
What role do you play in your answer?

Read 1 Corinthians 12 once more. Ask God to speak to you about your church and how it can better function as a body of Christ. Ask Him to speak to you about your relationship to the body of Christ. Discuss and record anything you sense God is saying to you through His Word.

Be Generous
