05 Mar Be the Body – March 7
Unity in Christ// 1 Cor 12:12–13
“12 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. 13 For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit.”
The 1st century church constantly had to deal with unity issues. The Jewish community had been ingrown for years and outsiders were not normally welcome. God had a different plan for his new Church. You will notice in many of Paul’s letters the need for unity. As Christians living today we still sometimes struggle with unity. Our world divides us but we are called to unite in Christ. The same Holy Spirit lives in all believers. Today pray for those who are different than you. Let us be a community that celebrates differences in the Body of Christ.
