Skin color is just one small difference that must NOT separate the people of God!


True followers of Christ are called the FAMILY of God, the HOUSEHOLD of God, and the BODY of Christ and we should NOT be separated by our differences, especially skin color! How foolish and immature for people to allow something so superficial to separate BELIEVERS in the family of God and body of Christ!

Maybe those people are NOT really in the family or body after all? Makes you think since what body would be separated by such small differences? Well, Paul addressed division in the church over spiritual gifts in I Cor. 12:12-30 and over heritage/race in Romans 3:29-30.

Let’s strive to be unified with other believers no matter what small differences we may have. Let’s embrace diversity and make it unify us not separate us!

Galatians 6:10 reminds us: “So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” Let’s do good to everyone, especially those in the household of God, regardless of how they look on the outside (I Sam. 16:7).

-Mark (seeking unity among the household of God)
