Together in the Lord

I come to the final article in this series. I would like to quote :

“Every believer is baptised into the body of Christ by the Holy Spirit and thus being members of one another, are responsible for keeping the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace, loving one another fervently.”

This well written statement hardly needs comment. Let me point out that the ‘body of Christ’ has only one head, that being Christ Jesus Himself, once crucified, now risen and exalted to heaven. He has sent forth His Holy Spirit to enable the spread of the Gospel and to gather together in one, the believers from every tribe and language and nation. This togetherness goes well beyond denominational systems to a unity on the basis of the cross. Those who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, are brought to the God the Father, as living stones in a spiritual temple, to be to the praise of His glory.( Ephesians 2)

We do well to search our hearts daily:

‘Am I moving in harmony with the  Holy Spirit?’

‘Do I love all his people with a pure heart fervently?’

‘Is Jesus Christ the Lord who directs my all?’

comments and questions welcome.
