As we so often find, when we meditate on Scripture, we are directly challenged. 1 Corinthians 1 verse 10: I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment.

How do we get to this point in our church? How do we get to this point in our hearts, where we are agreeing with all believers that we are living without division, without division between us, regardless of denomination, of country, of culture? Paul is saying, in the name of Jesus he is saying that there should be no division between us and other Christians, and that seems harder than ever for us to achieve.

Are we willing to lay down our lives? Are we willing to approach one another in humility and say, I love you and I can worship with you. I can worship Jesus. I can worship God with you, my brother, my sister.

This challenge remains as relevant as ever: that we should agree with one another. That we should tear down these boundaries, these borders, these divisions, and that we be united with our fellow Christians. Because what a witness that is to the world!

Oh God, please help us in this. We are so weak. We are so prone to thinking that we are right and others are wrong about you. God, please help the church worldwide to rise up as one in your name, proclaiming the gospel, proclaiming peace and proclaiming your truth and justice and love to those around us. Amen.
