Wednesday 03/30/2005: We are One body

For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. The body is not one member, but many.” ICorinthians 12:12-14

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!
