“For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us”
The church has often been described as the body of Christ. All the members of the church are the various parts of the same body with Jesus Christ as the Head. We were united by His death.
Since all of us together constitute the body of the Holy One, regardless of our differences, it becomes imperative to be at peace within ourselves and also with one another for the smooth functioning of the body, that God so loves.
God has made each one of us unique. We are all one of a kind and irreplaceable in the eyes of the Lord. No one understands us better than the one who created us. God knows that in this world filled with unrest, corruption, brokenness, His children need something special. Something that will guard our hearts and minds and keep us from falling apart. Therefore, He gave us His peace. The peace that surpasses all understanding. God`s peace will keep His body peaceful inside even if there is turmoil outside. Let us be thankful to God for the peace that He has so generously bestowed upon us. It is only His peace that keeps us together and at peace with one another.
What a privilege is it to be a part of God`s divine structure. It is so beautiful to know that God considers each one of us vital for the functioning of His kingdom. In fact, each one of us, combined is His church. We are made and united for the sole purpose of glorifying Him and giving Him thanks.
