We are one body and Christ is the head.... this weekend I was led out of my comfort zone. On Saturday, I attended a conference as a vendor. No big deal right? Well when I met the conference organizer and asked what church they were from, they replied New Jersey. The way I found out about this conference, was definitely Holy Spirit led. I felt His presence and I knew I was to be there. God even confirmed I was to be there by my writing. The morning before I went to the conference, my post was about Psalms 23. When I arrived to the conference, one of the presenters spoke from Psalms 23!! ( One Spirit)
Before I started the day on Sunday, He had me reading Ephesians. Chapter 4, explains just who we are. One Body, One Spirit. We are all the body of Christ and He wants us to be unified in Him. All of us, black or white, short or tall, purple or green, Baptist or Methodist, there is no separation.
I decided to drive to a church and surprise a friend. But when I arrived to the church, I was surprised!! No church on fourth Sunday!! I drove over an hour to be at the church. I started to turn around and go back home, but the Holy Spirit led me a different direction. I saw another church out the corner of my eye and was led to worship there.
We walked in the church and let's just say, you could immediately tell we were visitors. But God!!! I felt the presence of the Lord in that place.
Before the Pastor preached, the worship team sang a song about "in the midst of it all, there was Jesus!! I could have shouted right there and been done. When the pastor preached his sermon, it was what I needed. I was so blessed by his sermon. God used him in a mighty way. (One Body)
Before Jesus ascended, He left the Holy Spirit for ALL, all that believe in Him and those who do not believe, He is there waiting. The Holy Spirit do not change based on denominations or color of skin. Jesus came not to condemn the world, but that the world (everybody) may be saved.
One body, one Spirit ( Read John 3:17, Ephesians 4: 3-6)
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
