Tonight I had the good pleasure of getting together with leaders from three other South Bay churches to pray, plan and prepare for Beth Moore’s So Long, Insecurity simulcast on April 24th. We had a great time laughing, praying, eating chocolate cupcakes and sharing in the joy of doing something together.
The body of Christ working together in unity is something I have come to treasure and commit myself to praying towards. Not just the body I belong to, but the greater body of Christ… all churches who hold Him at the center and proclaim His name for His glory. In a world that has come to see the divisive, hypocritical and harsh side of the Church, I believe God rejoices in is seeing His Bride represented by love, unity, harmony and peace.
As I left our meeting tonight, I felt a smile upon my face that was brought on by true joy that comes from unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
“I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.” ~ Ephesians 4:1-6
