1 Cor 12:12-13

12 For just as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body - though many - are one body, so too is Christ. 13 For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body. Whether Jews or Greeks or slaves or free, we were all made to drink of the one Spirit.

NET

“We are members of the body of Christ”. I heard this phrase so many times growing up as a Christian. The implication of this truth is that Christians are to be the most united people in the entire universe because we are all members of one body. Sadly, I have also observed that the relationship between many Christian organizations is usually characterized by anything but unity.

We see from our text that it is in one spirit that we are baptized into one body. The key to real Christian unity is the Holy Spirit. When Christians are conscious of being filled with the Holy Spirit, they will individually discover that they agree more and walk more in unity. We don't achieve unity in the body by merely talking about unity; we achieve it by individually being filled with the Holy Spirit. This applies to homes as well.

Go into today knowing that being filled with the spirit is something you can consciously decide to do; it means allowing the Holy Spirit permeate your life and world: Read Ephesians 5:18-21

Prayer: Heavenly father, I desire to be filled with the spirit always, and I know you want this for me too. I pray you help me stay filled with the spirit always, in Jesus name I pray. Amen
