the wonder of one…

For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.

Romans 12:4-5 ESV

I wonder at the Oneness of God… Three-In-One…

His Body… His Church… One with many members…

I wonder at the ones He brings into my life…

He draws those who are His together… as one…

On my own… in my introversion… I would be isolated… insulated… alone among whom I choose…

But in Him… He connects me with others I never thought likely…

I wonder at the gifts they bring… the wonder of Him in them…

We are not meant to be isolated… He created us for community…

“It is not good that man should be alone…”

Genesis 2:18 ESV

Only in community can we love…

But only in Him… can the community be one… in love… peace… patience… and compassion…

He draws us together… despite our druthers… because we need one another…

And the ones you need… and those who need you… He brings together by His Spirit…

There is one body and one Spirit — just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call — one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

Ephesians 4:4-6 ESV

The wonder of one…
