Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, has these same manifold characteristics and, as His Body, the church is to emulate Him. Thus, ideally, we are a manifold body; made up of many parts (1 Corinthians 12:11-13) all working together for the glory of God. Christ’s body parts are varied in ethnicity, culture, nationality, race, color, political leanings and worship style, but all make up one body.
In the old hymn, Great is Thy Faithfulness, the second verse says:
Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon, and stars in their courses above;
Join with all nature in manifold witness,
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy, and love.
