We are One in the Spirit

This morning I woke with this song running through my head and I thought I’d share:

We are one in the Spirit
Words and music: Rev. Peter Scholtes

We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord.
We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord.
And we pray that all unity may one day be restored,
and they’ll know we are Christians by our love, by our love.
Yes, they’ll know we are Christians by our love.

We will walk with each other, we will walk hand in hand.
We will walk with each other, we will walk hand in hand.
And together we’ll spread the news that God is in our land.
and they’ll know we are Christians by our love, by our love.
Yes, they’ll know we are Christians by our love.

We will work with each other, we will work side by side.
We will work with each other, we will work side by side.
And we’ll guard each man’s dignity and give up all our pride.
and they’ll know we are Christians by our love, by our love.
Yes, they’ll know we are Christians by our love.

Yesterday, American’s celebrated a day that is set aside to remember those who have fallen in military service to our country. We are able to enjoy much peace and liberty because of their efforts throughout generations. Yet, I long for peace. The maker of the above video longs for peace. Though we may experience moments of peace while in this world, in this flesh, we will not experience true peace in this life.

There was peace in the garden of Eden before the fall of mankind. There will yet again be peace around the tree of life in the New Jerusalem. We have armies to maintain order and to protect our citizens. The New Jerusalem keeps its gates open for there will be no fear of attack or uprising in those days.

The church should be more unified than it appears on the surface. Though we have many differences, there is one body, one spirit, and one baptism. We should unify over our similarities. We believers should work towards unity within our churches, co-workers, friends, and neighbors. We should seek to love one another while we are in this life, in this flesh.

Spirit, help us.
