This week I am participating in the Bladen Mission Project. This is an important week of making the Love of Jesus Christ real and tangible in Bladen County. This week's prayers were written for the mission project's daily devotions. I invite you to pray along with us!
“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 the one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.” I Corinthians 12:12-13
United. One. Together. Without division. Whole. One-for-all and All-for One. This passage of scripture says that we, the followers of Christ, are one. On the outside we may seem very different. We may talk differently, dress differently, act differently, like different things, look different, think differently, and even believe differently. But in fact, as followers of Jesus Christ, as Christians, we are united as one – one body. We have ALL messed up. We are ALL in need of being forgiven. And we are ALL LOVED by God.
United. One. Together. Without division. Whole.
We are the ONE forgiven loved children of God.
Think of something that has many small parts but put together becomes one whole.
Share one way you think believers of Jesus Christ can act as ONE body.
