Fell The Walls
by Randy Chambers, 2014-07-19
1 Corinthians 12:26, NIV: If one part suffers, every part
suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.
In the society in which in we live, there are divisions within divisions. What
was once proclaimed indivisible is ever increasingly divided. It has become the
norm to pridefully flaunt individuality and come together with those who hold
similar viewpoints. Rather than seeking that which unites us, we choose sides
and willfully refuse to consider the ideals or beliefs of others. This can be
said of our nation, of our culture, and even of our churches. So many Christians
believe that church is a place wherein they should find unity, acceptance, and
sanctuary from the world. Yet, so many feel disconnected, and are wary of
allowing anyone close enough to know him or her for who they really are. It is
sad that we have let our cultural stigmas seep through the walls of the church.
We detach ourselves and avoid getting real so that we might feel safe within the
walls of our own private worlds. When will the walls come down so the people of
God can be one—in suffering, in rejoicing, and in honor?
