We Are One
“Do you see someone skilled in their work? They will serve before kings; they will not serve before officials of low rank. [Proberbs 22:29]”
Today we are going to discuss about community. We live together and build a community. Further, we serve a nation and the whole world. Everybody is skilled but differently. It is like a bicycle, for instance, handles, wheels, a seat, etc.
“But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called ‘Today,’ so that none of your may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. [Hebrews 3:13]”
Therefore, we should serve each other and encourage one another. We are the CHURCH and we form one body. Can a person walk without feet? Can a person eat and drink without both hands? We love one another and operate one another. Somebody has to do it. Somebody has to be a cashier, somebody has to be a dishwasher, somebody has to be a manager, and somebody has to be a soldier.
“Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many. [Hebrews 12:14 – 15]
So, we are going to do our best to get along each other with our different skills. We are not going to commit sins each other and hate each other. We are not going to compete each other. With love of God, we are going to teach our skills to the junior workers. We will try our best so that no corruptions are going to grow under us.
“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. [Ephesians 2:10]”
We are created based on Jesus, which means we are very special to God. Everybody has a special skill. Humble jobs are special too. Imagine what the hands of cashiers and dishwashers. They are so fast, delicate, and tireless. They are even patient. Jesus is the most wise, skilled, and noble person. Somebody has to do some jobs and they are very special people.
“Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. [Ephesians 4:3]”
Therefore, we should not hate our coworkers or other skilled workers. Be humble and learn more skills. Be gentle and patient. Forgive them and encourage them.
In conclusion, we are one body. It is not necessary to say that we are one church because we might be with a lot of non-believers. However, WE ARE ONE.
