WE ARE ONE (POEM)
Disunity in the body of Christ is very common today. Amazingly, some Christian denominations feel they alone will be entitled to get into heaven because of what they consider their doctrinal soundness. Sometimes, the differences in teaching and opinion are on minor issues like what musical instruments should be used in church, what day should worship services be held on (Saturday or Sunday) and whether believers should wear certain types of clothes and jewelry.
My concern over this has led me to feature a guest post on it. You can click on the title to read it.
I also did a funny personal experience feature on my own interaction with a fellow believer of a different persuasion years ago. You can also read that via the title below.
Augustine of Hippo famously admonished us thus on this matter of unity: “In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity.”

Against this backdrop by God’s grace, I composed this little poem to remind us of our oneness in Christ on this joyous occasion. May God help us to celebrate and uphold one another irrespective of our doctrinal and denominational differences so that our witness before the world will be powerful in Jesus’ name.

WE ARE ONE
We may think we are on separate lanes
We may call ourselves by different names
We may differ on how to dress
We may have varying styles of praise
But if by the blood of Christ we’ve been saved
We are one, brothers and sisters beloved
HAPPY EASTER, EVERYONE!!! WE ARE ONE!!!
