This paper discusses the biblical depictions of the church as a broken body, a suffering body and finally, by God’s grace, a maturing body and explores the implications of these images for our understanding of disability. To understand the power of God working through his people, we must under- stand two things: first, brokenness forces us to see God as the ultimate and only reliable source of power; secondly, God, through his Holy Spirit, brings about brokenness in the people he intends to use for his glory.
