In this life it is very easy to allow walls to come up between us without even recognizing why they are there. Have you ever seen someone and formed an opinion of them before they even opened their mouth? Have you allowed a wall to build between someone because you can’t figure them out? Or, have you allowed a wall to come up with someone because they don’t fit into your mold of life?
So many times in life we separate ourselves from people because they might not dress as we do, act as we do, live as we do, or sadly we feel that they are not as good as we think we may be. In the body of Christ there are many parts that have many different functions and if we call ourselves Christians but do not learn how to respect each part for the roll they carry then we need to honestly evaluate who we think we are.
Personally, I have experienced many parts of the christian body from the bottom to the top and unfortunately witnessed a disconnection due to certain ones not feeling good enough and others just thinking they are too good to associate with everyone else. Sometimes in life we allow division because we just don’t know how to make that first step forward to understand the person that God may have placed in our path. What did Jesus teach us about our salvation? Is God’s mercy and grace only for a select few or is it for all who understand our position under God with Jesus as the head of the body?
I challenge you today and every other day to not allow Satan to place walls in front of you. Because if we carry questions or don’t understand them then what right do we have to form an opinion of them until we take the time to properly understand? Once we allow a wall to rise Satan goes to work in our minds to build it so high that we don’t know when to stop climbing. All we have to do is allow the love of Jesus to break through and then it will amazing how God will carry you…amen
