One Body, Many Members

For this week's Morning Watch Monday let's reflect on believers working together.

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 one Spirit we were all baptized into one body— Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and  m all were made to drink of one Spirit.

My church wrapped up a sermon series called “Rediscovering Church.” We have been examining the church in its early days and the church of today – we looked at the concept of unity in the church. If you read the first couple chapters of Acts, you will see that there were some beautiful things about the early church. There were also moments of tension and conflict, and the early church dealt with those moments in a very open, real way. The main theme of the sermon was a reminder…as Christians, and as members of the church, we are all on the same team. No matter what your church looks like…the denomination, the size, the kind of music played, the way people dress…as Christ followers we are all on the same team, working towards the common goal of spreading Jesus’ love and telling people about the hope to be found in His resurrection.
