I want to apologize for how long today’s reading was. Great job if you made it all the way through. ;)
While today’s reading was not actually that long there was a large amount of truth squeezed into it. Dysfunction and a lack of unity can often describe our lives. Look at many families, they have anything but unity. Look at our political structure in our country … there is hardly ever any unity taking place. (I will have to say, when tragedy strikes our country, for twenty-four hours or so the party lines tend to be dropped and we are all Americans … that is what makes us great.) Sadly you can look at many churches and see that unity is lacking amongst those who are saved by the blood of Christ.
I dream of a day where nothing separates us. I dream of a day where the fighting about the color of skin, the style of worship, the opinions of doctrine, and so many others are removed from the discussion. I dream for a day when the church stands up, united together, and explodes the kingdom of God all over this globe. That task would not be so hard if we would all stand together, untied together. Are you willing to step out, to step up and seek unity?
