We are One
We as Christians, we are one. We may be part of different local churches. We many share the exact same view of every issue or every belief. We man not be the same mind on everything.
But we are one.
There is one body. There is one Spirit. We are part of the same body.
We are one.
Listen to what Paul says this morning in Ephesians.
There is one body. One spirit. One hope. One Lord. One faith. One baptist. One God and Father.
The same Holy Spirit calls us into relationship with the Father through the Son. We share the same faith. We share the same hope. We share the same body. We all believe the gift of baptism.
Yes, there may be differences between us all. But that's ok. For we are one.
Now, imagine if the church would live as one. Imagine if we would work together. Serve together. Make a difference together.
Glorify God together.
There is so much for the kingdom that we can do together.
So, today, let's not "act" like we are one. Let's realize that we "are" one. And let's live in that reality.
Today, let's realize that there are so many more things that unite us, instead of separate us. We really are one.
So, let's treat each other as family. Let's love each other. Let's serve each other. Let's serve with each other. We are one.
Let's show the world that. Let's show the world our love, our Lord, our hope, our calling.
We are one. Let's live like it today!
