For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. (Romans 1:16)

While listening to a Christian radio broadcast, the host of the show was speaking about the true church of Jesus Christ.

There were two guests, of diverse backgrounds and denominations. But there was one thing that these different personalities all agreed upon— the true Church of Jesus Christ, which is within all of us.

There shouldn’t be lines in the sand creating divisions of love for Christ. We’re all united in Jesus, when we accept Him. And His Gospel unites us all.

He dwells in the believer. He lives within. He is Our Church…and in the end we will all agree. There no longer will be denominations, or religions. Religion is a word that Christ Himself wouldn’t approve of.

Denomination, the word itself carries the meaning, dividing of the whole. In theological terms it means a dividing of the Body of Christ. God sent His son to dwell among us. The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. He came to heal, teach, love and defeat death, so whoever should believe will live forever.

The Holy Spirit, our Helper, and comforter, that God sent for us is with us always.

God is a God for all people. And when He returns, what a glorious time it will be. Until then, embrace and enjoy Him as He dwells within.

Father, thank You for loving us so much that You sent Your Son, and a Comforter, and Helper, I pray for Your light to shine into the dark places of this world, and Your perfect peace to those in turmoil, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
