Affirm One Another in Christ

We live in divided times. In particular, those of us who love Jesus are more divided than ever. A trip to the “church” section of the yellow pages or Google is heart-breaking.

The church is polarized today.

This is contrary, of course, to what the Bible teaches.

There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:28

If we contextualize that statement made by Paul to the church today that statement would read like this.

There is no liberal or conservative, Baptist or Catholic, black church or Korean church, suburban or urban. For we are one in Christ.

I pray that we lay aside or differences… as real and pressing as they seem… and live in the tension and knowledge that all people who call on the name of Jesus for salvation are one in Christ.

It’s easy and childish to focus on what divides us, it is mature and difficult to instead embrace the common mission we share.

Amen?
