As we continue into week 2 of our series on the awkward and essential challenge of Christian community that we’ve called ‘Uncomfortable’ we are looking at the fact that even though the church is made up of people that we may not always get along with or agree with – that is ok, because that is still something that God can use for good.
That despite our differences, the Holy Spirit unites us and works in our hearts and communities for our good and for His glory.
The reason for this is because everyone is welcome and has a part to play in the body of Christ. The Apostle Paul uses the metaphor of the body to describe the church, that every part belongs to the body, and so it is with the church – everyone plays a crucial role in the body of Christ.
But although we are different, we are united in the most important way: by the Holy Spirit.
So let’s be ‘uncomfortable’ in the Spirit together. – Pastor Ben
