For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.
Isn't this precious? We are one body with Christ. All who name Jesus the Christ as Lord and Savior and who believe that He was resurrected from the dead are one with Him and with each other Jesus'n'Body are one entity.
I cannot; no must not refuse the love and outreach of another member of the Body—we are one. How is Lord's heart must break at the schisms and separations that exist within the Body? How would I feel if two of my grandchildren would not even sit at my table and share a meal together?
