Thought for the Week from MU

  • 20th - 26th January 2019 - United in Christ

    United in Christ

     

    We are one in the Spirit, we are one on the Lord we are one in the Spirit we are one in the Lord

    and we pray that all unity may one day be restored

    and they’ll know we are Christian by our love, by our love and they’ll know we are Christians be our love.

     

    THE word of unity here is LOVE. Love is the identity word, a loving heart the central function, and loving mind the seal. And at every twist and turn of the Way we can expect to be challenged, threatened, reduced to despair, overcome by fear and dragged along by someone’s Love. The challenge is to realise when we are not loving, the threat is to have our ego dismantled, faith can call us out of despair, fear is defeated by trust and always someone is praying for us, always God’s love is seeking us, calling us to LOVE.

     

    I ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one. As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. John 17:20-21

     

    Mothers’ Union members in both Ethiopia and Uganda practiced unity in Christ when those from Ethiopia visited their neighbour in order to share knowledge and learn from each other. Love was needed to conceive and execute this venture as ethnic and political issues and the scares of war meant members needed to overcome fear and prejudice. God’s blessing hovered over their journey and its outcomes of love and understanding.
