The cry for the unity of the body of Christ is more audible today than it has ever been, and yet it seems that the Church is no closer to true unity than it ever was. Not only do we continue to divide over old controversies, but we seem to create new controversies every year. Will there ever be true unity in among Christians?
The New Testament uses bread as a metaphor for helping us understand who we are as the body of Christ: many grains, but one loaf. What we discover when we consider this biblical portrait of our unity is that it is not something that we can achieve by our own endeavors; it has been purchased by the blood of Christ.
Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Mindy McCready, Amy Winehouse, Anna Nicole Smith, Elvis Presley . . . All of these individuals had five things in common.
1) They were all wealthy. 2) They were all famous. 3) They were all ultra-gifted and incredibly successful. 4) They were all unhappy. 5) They all died early deaths, either by drug overdose or by suicide. The lesson is clear: wealth+ fame + success does not equal happiness. But a question remains: since we already knew this, why do we still fantasize about wealth, fame and success?
Hello Youth Pastor! Could you help me by answering a few questions for me below? Your responses will be both anonymous and confidential. I will neither know who you are, nor share your responses with anyone.
The purpose of this pole is to help me better understand the needs of youth pastors and youth in the contemporary church. I have a burden from the Lord concerning the needs of individuals engaged in this precious ministry, and I’d love to hear from you!
