A United Church

For almost a week running, most of our readings talked about loving one another as the Lord Jesus Christ loved us and Jesus praying to the Father that all may be one as the Son and the Father are one. This moves us to pause and ask why the emphasis is on loving one another and staying together as one whole body of Christ. Unity is very paramount in every organisation because it is the lifeblood, and so is it to the Church. A church that is not loving and united loses its relevance because that is the foundation of the Church. Divisions in the Church of God open the floodgate for the enemy to penetrate quickly and create confusion. 

1 Corinthians 3:4-6 tells us how the early Church was divided into individuals rather than God, who gives growth and sustenance. “For when one says, ‘I belong to Paul’, and another, ‘I belong to Apollos’, are you not merely human? What, then, is Apollos? What is Paul? Servants through whom you came to believe, as the Lord assigned to each. I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth.” 

The Church of God is not about individuals. It is about Christ Jesus, so when we focus on mortal beings, we miss the mark; instead, our focus must always be on Christ Jesus. We are all human beings striving for perfection through the grace of God. The body of Christ comprises different parts, and all the parts work together to achieve the great commission. There will be other opinions here and there, but that must not divide us; all the differences must help us make the right decisions and come out with lovely and heart-warming music like a symphony orchestra through the power of the Holy Spirit. 

We are all on the same team headed by Jesus Christ, so we must remain in his love so that he will dwell in us. We all have a role to play; everyone is essential in Christ’s body. No role is small or more significant; we are all the same because our shared goal is to please our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.


We will need some donations for the food bank in the coming days. Your support will be appreciated. We need the following items: Tin Fish, Cereals, Long-Life Milk, Sugar, Rice, Biscuits, Tea, Coffee, etc.

Please we would like to meet all those who would like to volunteer in the Boys’ Brigade to see Fr. Josiah after Mass.
