January 21–Belonging In Jesus…Belonging To Each Other

…so in Christ we who are many form one body,

and each member belongs to all the others.

Romans 12:5

I have to just tell you how thankful I am for the Body of Christ. How very thankful I am for my brothers and sisters who encourage me, challenge me, care for me and get all up in my face when necessary!

I am thankful for the truth that in Christ—in spite of significant personalilty differences, cultural differences or experiential differences—we, the members of the Body of Christ, belong to one another. Yep, even with our flaws and foibles, our quirks and our perspectives—there is still One Lord…One Body…One Spirit who binds us all together in His love.

And I am thankful. Thankful for the truth of this connection in the right here–right now kinds of ways…and for this connection that will last for all of eternity. I am thankful to belong to Jesus…and to all in the Body of Christ!

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
