Thankful Thursday: One Body

My soul never ceases to swell with praise when I am surrounded by people singing out to their Savior.  It’s especially meaningful to me when the people are young.

Last night was Unite – a worship  night for teens in the area.  Youth groups from neighboring towns gathered in one local church to praise God together. I was encouraged by this display of unity among believers.

God shows no favoritism and this group was a living, praising example of the corporate body of Christ.   Many voices sang out, many hands were raised to honor our Lord.  It was an audible and visual reminder that we are called to be One body, One family, One church under Christ.

Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace.  {Ephesians 4:3}
