For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.   For in the one Spirit we were all baptized into one body - Jews or Greeks, slaves or free - and we were made to drink of one Spirit... But as it is, God arranged the members of the body, each one of them as he chose. 1 Corinthians 12:12-13, 18
