We are in an hour of much division among believers. BUT WHY?As I always use the illustration of a business to bring an understanding of how the Body of Christ is to operate as Kingdom. God never intended for us to work alone. In a business, or a job per se, each position is important. Including the position of a janitor. Although, certain positions may stand out more than the other, each one is important.

This is how it is in the Body of Christ. We all have a part to play. No one is considered less than. Let’s take a look at the scriptures.

For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. For the body is not one member, but many. If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. And if they were all one member, where were the body? But now are they many members, yet but one body. And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary. And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness. For our comely parts have no need. But God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked. That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it. Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.”

-1 Corinthians 12:12-27

Here we see how each part of the Body is necessary. We need one another in order for us to be effective. Also, in order to deal with the division among us, we must deal with the issues that causes the division like offense. Unfortunately, as believers, we have a tendency to cut people off instead of making amends.

I continue to speak on this because we NEED one another more in this hour than ever before. Our relationship with the Lord and with one another is extremely important. We need the peacemakers to arise and bring peace (reconcilation).

*Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. (Matthew 5:9)I believe the Lord is dealing with all of our hearts concerning this and will continue to do so until we become the Body He has predestined us to be. ARISE AND LET’S BE THE BODY!
