In my life, work and travels, I may be having lunch with a democrat today, breakfast with republican tomorrow, coffee with an independent the next day, all dear friends and fellow disciples. I may meet with a Presbyterian today, a Baptist tomorrow, a Pentecostal the next day. We are fellow disciples who are urging one another on toward a stronger personal discipleship.
I try (and fail, but keep trying – I am such a sinner) to be careful so as to make the conversations I’m a part of worthwhile. It is my hope that conversations will be focused upon those things that will give glory to God.
This is confirmed for me by the following:
“So let no one boast in men. For all things are yours, whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future—all are yours, and you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.” (1 Corinthians 3:21-23 ESV)
May our conversations find meaning as we point one another to the greatness of God rather than the allegiances of men. May we focus on Christ who unified rather than things that divide.
