00079 - We are one body united

Updated: Mar 10, 2023

With more than one third of the planet Christian, it’s amazing to think that God doesn’t just know our names, He is interested in every part of our lives. Christianity is the most connected and most influential group of people on the planet.

1 Corinthians 12:12-14 says ‘Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. For we were all baptised by one Spirit so as to form one body – whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free – and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. And so the body is not made up of one part but of many’ (NIV).

Regardless of wealth, culture, or language, God loves spending quality time with one of His children in prayer. Across the globe remember, one in three people profess faith in Jesus, how amazing is that?

Quote We are one body, knitted together around the name and life of Jesus.

Prayer Thank you, Lord, that there are now more Christians living than ever before, that I am part of that family, Amen.

Action point

If you haven’t spoken to an overseas Christian friend for a while, why not give them a ring today.
