There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all. Ephesians 4:4-6 (NASB)
The Christmas season is fast approaching, Advent is only eight days away. Charles Dickens books are being pulled off bookshelves by some for their annual fix of Dickensian festive cheer. Soon it will again be “the season peace and goodwill to all men.” Yet we live in a divided fractious world beset by the worst passions of selfish humanity. The church instead of being the guiding light for the world is also divided, one denomination against another.
This was not God’s plan, but He foresaw the divisiveness of fallen man and made provision for it. The Mighty Triune God provides a way of hope for sinful man, a narrow path from Bethlehem to Calvary that finishes in the glory of Heaven. The Path of Peace is open to all repentant men, regardless of Christian denomination. Our various ways of worshipping God achieve the same result of bringing our sacrifice of repentance to the Almighty.
Dear reader,as we approach Advent let our light shine a message of Godly unity, a message of hope for a lost world. Prepare yourselves for the journey ahead to the manger at Bethlehem, where God meets us on the Path of Peace.
