When we put our faith in Jesus, we are not just saved out of something (sin and death) but we are also saved into something (God’s family). When we believe the good news of the gospel, we receive the Holy Spirit and through the Holy Spirit we are brought into the body of Christ.
In Scripture, the church is referred to as a body because like a human body with different parts, the church is one and yet every believer has a unique role. Every believer is given “serving grace” by means of spiritual gifts that are imparted by the Holy Spirit at the time of their conversion.
As we fulfill our unique role and exercise our spiritual gifts, and as we walk in love and godly conduct, we build one another up, hence making us “body builders.” We may not lift weights, but we are still “body builders” when we contribute to the building up of Christ’s body.
