Text: Acts 21:27-39.
During Paul’s time, nationalistic, religious and cultural animosities were high; Israelites versus the Gentiles, the circumcised against the
uncircumcised, the Jews against the foreigners or aliens, and many such like Paul survived death on a flimsy charge that he was a foreigner
(V 39). And yet in Christ Jesus there is no difference whatsoever. (See Galatians 3:28).
It is very absurd and unfortunate that we still find differences among the Christians. Is there anything you would like to apply to yourself or to do differently from today’s reading? What does ‘being one in Christ’ mean to you with the many denominations we have today?
Lord God, I pray for strength and ability to break all walls and barriers of hostility and to build good relationships. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.
