In one Spirit we were all baptized into one body; Jews or Greeks, slaves or free, and all were made to drink of one Spirit; For the body does not consist of one member but of many. If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. If the whole body were an eye, where would be the sense of hearing? If the whole body were an ear, where would be the sense of smell? But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as He chose (1 Corinthians 12:13-18). If we have been united with Him in a death like His, we shall certainly be united with Him in a resurrection like His (Romans 6:5).
Knowing that we are members of one body makes us family. God is our Father, we need to be united with one another to promote growth, otherwise members of our family will become weak, and will not function as they should. God made provision for His family, and we are responsible to make sure all the members are cared for. Make it your business to look after each other, to build and not to tear down. This family is very special to it’s maker, and He expect us as His children to do our duties well and function properly.
If you are lacking in your duty, the rest will suffer as a result, therefore, let holy communication never be lacking among us, so we can encourage each other to hold on, when they need it most. Look around, the world is not getting any better. People are dying, and the ones killing them think they are doing God a favour. The very God who said do not kill. Children of God, it is time to remember who we are, and to be vigilant because the devil has a much shorter time and things are going to get worse before it gets better. God is in control, He has not left us helpless, do not be discouraged by the evil around you. They think they are doing God a favour, but they works are evil and not godly. All these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. Keep your faith in God intact, because He will repay those who do wickedness, and it is Him that will bring them to an end not us. In all the distress, do not forget that we cannot repay evil with evil, rather, pray for our enemies, do good to those who hurt you. They will not get away with evil, God will deal with them later, at His appointed time. While you wait for the will of God, stay united with each other in love, because God, is LOVE. God bless you.
