Imagine a group of people who have been created for a great purpose; a destiny. A group of people with amazing supernatural gifts & an unshakable desire to do good to others & war against evil.
Imagine this group of individuals, with their different backgrounds, talents & amazing gifts, being drawn together, connected with one another as a band or fellowship.

Sounds like Xmen, Justice League or Heroes, but I'm actually talking of the local church. A group of individuals, men, women & children who were created & called for a purpose; to Glorify God & bring His Gospel (Good News) of redemption through Jesus to the world.
These individuals are united through one Spirit who Gifts and empowers each of them differently, but works up desires within them to work for good & the glory of God.

Just ponder the words of Romans 12:4-18

"For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function,
so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.
Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith;
or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching;
he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.
Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good.
Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another;
not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord;
rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer;
distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality.
Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.
Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.
Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion.
Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men.
If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.
