20 Biblical Metaphors for the Church

21 The Church 6 Biblical Metaphors for the Church Body Family Bride Temple Army Team

22 The Biblical Metaphors for the Church Col 1:18 (NLT) Christ is the head of the church, which is his body. 1. Body

23 The 1 Corinthians 12:12 (NLT) The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up one whole body. So it is with the body of Christ. 1. Body

24 The 1 Corinthians 12:14-15 (NLT) Yes, the body has many different parts, not just one part. If the foot says, “I am not a part of the body because I am not a hand,” that does not make it any less a part of the body. 1. Body

25 The 1 Corinthians 12:18(NLT) But our bodies have many parts, and God has put each part just where he wants it. 1. Body

26 The 1 Corinthians 12:22 (NLT) In fact, some parts of the body that seem weakest and least important are actually the most necessary. 1. Body

27 The 1 Corinthians 12:25-26 (NLT) This makes for harmony among the members, so that all the members care for each other. If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it, and if one part is honored, all the parts are glad. 1. Body

28 The 1 Timothy 3:15 (NCV) … you will know how to live in the family of God. That family is the church of the living God, the support and foundation of the truth. 2. Family

29 The 2 Corinthians 6:18 (NIV) “And I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” Isa 66:13 (NIV) “As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you” 2. Family

30 The 2 Tim 2:3-4 (NIV) Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer. 3. Army

31 The Eph 6:12-13 (NLT) For we are not fighting against flesh- and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. 3. Army

32 The 2 Cor 10:3-4 (NLT) We are human, but we don’t wage war as humans do. We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. 3. Army

33 The 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (NLT) Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body. 4. Temple

34 The Eph 2:19-21 (NIV) … you are fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household… with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. 4. Temple

35 The 1 Peter 2:4-5(NLT) You are coming to Christ, who is the living cornerstone of God’s temple… And you are living stones that God is building into his spiritual temple. What’s more, you are his holy priests. 4. Temple

36 The Ephesians 5:25-27 (NLT) For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word. He did this to present her to himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish. Instead, she will be holy and without fault. 5. Bride

37 The Hebrews 12:1-2 (NIV) Let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. 6. Team

38 The Acts 20:24 (NIV) However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me - the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace. 6. Team

39 The 1 Corinthians 9:24-25 (NIV) Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 6. Team
