Wednesday 03/30/2005: We are One body
A most telling name for the church is "The Body of Christ. We are joined by common beliefs at the core of our relationship with God. When we accepted Christ we put aside childish pretentions and came to him as we are.
Denominationalism is our childish rags put back on our cleansed bodies. Paul wrote in ICorinthians 3:4 "For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal?" and then in 3:11 "For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ."
Read the whole book of First Corinthians, then you can go to the Junior Partner website and read about the basics that bind us together.
We are one body, we need to work together declaring those things we share; and pray for each other, and ourselves, where we differ.
Jesus is Lord!
