No one hates his own body but feeds and cares for it, just as Christ cares for the church. And we are members of his body. (Ephesians 5:29-30 NLT)

When you are in Christ you are part of His kingdom.  There are many different parts of His kingdom that works in harmony with Christ in helping others join His kingdom and helping those that are in the kingdom.  The Kingdom of God is like our body.  We have many different parts.  Some visible and more predominate than other parts like hands, feet, eyes, etc.  The parts that are not visible but you can’t do without such as your heart and lungs.  All parts of the body work together so that you may bring glory to the Father.  When one part is hurting it affects the rest of the body.  If your back is hurting your whole body can’t function properly.  You take measures to help your back.  The same is true of the Kingdom of God.  When one part hurts, we need to help that part to get healthy.  We need each part of the Kingdom of God so that it functions as it was designed to spread the Gospel and nourish those that have accepted Christ.
