Being created in the image of God he has given each of us something of himself; only in part. When we put these parts together we can accomplish much for the kingdom of God.
The lack of this knowledge is the reason why some try to copy others in the body of Christ.
4 For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, NKJV
35 On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, "Let us cross over to the other side." 36 Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him. 37 And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. 38 But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, "Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?"
39 Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace, be still!" And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. 40 But He said to them, "Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?" 41 And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, "Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!" NKJV
In the above scriptures Jesus stilled the storm. But afterward he rebuked the disciples for their lack of faith. Where was their faith going to come from? It was going to come from what he said; “Let us pass over to the other side”. He said that because the Father said go to the other side.
