The body of Christ is a group of Christians that are to live in community, building one another up and stirring each other toward Christ. There are things that we can do to build that community, but there are also things we do that can tear through it. Ultimately, we need to walk with clear consciences before our Lord as we love and serve each other.
"I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace." Ephesians 4:1-3
