Do you know how blessed you are today? The church is God's family. Jesus is passionately in love with it and is pleased when we all gather, set aside our differences and celebrate His love for us. Look what the apostle Paul says in Ephesians 4:1-6, “As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bear
ing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit- just as you were called to one hope when you were called- one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
As the family of God, let us become an island of togetherness, making every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit, bearing with one another, through all of our weakness and idiosyncrasies, in love.
