Unify

Christianity is supposed to bring people together despite differences…not divide based on differences.

Ephesians 2:19

So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the holy ones and members of the household of God…

+++

Many are searching for belonging and acceptance.

Jesus spent much of his ministry reaching out to the lost, the outcast and the sick to let them know they are always included by God.

He restored them to wholeness, health and community.

The only people Jesus criticized were the Pharisees (religious leaders) who were trying to divide people. Many so-called Christians today continue to side with the Pharisees!

Jesus is the microcosm and Christ is the macrocosm. St. Paul wrote that we are all one body in the universal Christ.

That’s the Ultimate Reality.

The delusion is that we are divided.

Each of us is called to make the “body of Christ” a reality in this time and space…not only in our community but the whole world.

The “body of Christ” extends past human-imposed borders and boundaries to all people.

How can I put myself out of my comfort zone today to be with someone who is not in my crowd? How can I break down walls of division to be in solidarity with someone “different” from me? 

How can I be a manifestation of the Body of Christ?

If you are a Christian…this is your call.
