After living and observing other people’s lives for a few decades, I have never seen one body part fighting another. Even the mentally unstable individuals never have conflicting body parts. This says that the human body understands that though it has many parts, they work together in unity as one. The church as the body of Christ, has many parts but it all is one. Failure to appreciate this has led to a lot of conflict as to who is more important on the body.
There is no such a thing as who is more important, we are all body parts and we have one head who is Jesus, so why fight? Love the other parts of the body. Live peacefully with them all. Allow no conflict in your local church assembly and with other Christians; you are on the same team. All that believed Jesus are part of one body-the Church. We therefore live and work in unity as one not as many.
SCRIPTURE READING: 1 Corinthians 12: 20
As it is, there are many parts, but one body.
Dear heavenly father, thank you for my brothers and sisters and forgive me for the times I have not regarded them as part of me. Help me love them and not conflict with them. Help me live in Unity with the rest of the body in Jesus’ name, Amen.
