Well a Happy New Year everybody!
Of course our greatest prayer is for happy new beginnings, for ourselves and all those around us. Perhaps a year when everyone hears God calling their name, as a Father calls a son or daughter, and that we build our lives on his love and approval for us and then extend that to all those around us.
Thanks for being out and about over Christmas, demonstrating that there is only one body of Christ in this area. Your actions speak so loudly of our support and blessing for every congregation or gathering of believers. Every service I visited was full of life and love. What is God doing in this area? He is teaching us to love one another, so that the World will know!
“I in them and you in me – so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” John 17:23
So a new year of unity and diversity as we allow each other to be led by the Holy Spirit. Some things will draw us together perhaps sharing food as a wider family other things will see small groups of us rising to the challenge to be salt and light in our community. Everything will be about our individual walk with God, finding a secret place where we put him first, stop talking and just listen and allow ourselves to be refreshed.
[ Unity and diversity in the body ] Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. 1 Corinthians 12:12
So my friends we have a remarkable call on our lives as individuals and as a community within a larger community, remember:
How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity! Psalm 133
Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. Ephesians 4:3
