Today’s Battle Drill Devotional: You Belong Here!
Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose. (Philippians 2:2)
This week we consider what we can do to build up our church, our corps, the Body of Christ to be as beautiful as it can be.
Read Philippians 2:1-11. Picture in your mind the people you worship with each week. You belong to them! And they belong to you! Every one of them is different and you are different to them. But just as a human body fits together and works together, so should the Body of Christ.
Whatever differences there are – gender, race, culture, even differences of opinion – don’t matter as much as the unity of the church. We have all been baptised by the same Holy Spirit and that helps us to live and work together in unity.
You belong here and are part of that unity. Many of us have made that sense of belonging visible, by being made adherent members or enrolling as a soldier and wearing uniform. But whether you’ve taken those steps or not, you still belong here!
If we look past the differences we have and focus on the unity Christ wants for us, then God can do amazing work through us. Are you willing to take your place and play your part?
THINK IT OVER
Think about the following:
- What part do you believe God is asking you to play in the work of The Salvation Army or your church?
