“In Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.”Romans 12:5
Quite a long time back I heard somebody say, “I believe in the communication of the holy people.” While great communication is fundamental in a wide range of connections, our connection in Christ goes past communicating well among the saints. At the point when we say, with the Creed, “I believe in . . . the communion of holy people,” we are expressing that through Jesus’ blood we are one with him as well as to one another. Our blood relationship in Jesus rises above even the genuine blood we share with our own relatives. Furthermore, our fellowship with one another is something other than a statement of fact. Paul proceeds to clarify that having a place for each other has an essential capacity. Every one of us has been given gifts by the Holy Spirit. However, our gifts vary, the reason for them is something similar: to build each other up in service of the Lord and to assist all. Utilising our gifts prompts a wide range of manners by which we can show God’s love to each other. The gifts we have may incorporate teaching (prophesying – preaching the gospel), educating, leading, serving, giving, or various different capacities. Jesus wants us to utilise these gifts with thanksgiving and love to strengthen his body so that all can join in the communion of saints.
Lord Jesus, just as we belong to you, we belong to each other. Help us to use our gifts faithfully to build up your body and share your love with everyone. Amen
