One Spirit, One Body

“For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.” -1 Corinthians 12:13

It is truly amazing how many churches and factions and ideologies there are in Christianity when we are all supposed to be "one body". This is such a difficult thing, which is probably why Christ prayed that "all of them would be one" just as God and Jesus are one. People are different - we have different view points and life experiences, and the only perspective we have on the world is our own. Unless, that is, we have the Spirit of Jesus living in us! God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are completely, wholly, and perfectly united. They are on a singular mission to love all their children and to bring them home as they heal the world. If we can just get out of the way, and let Jesus' Holy Spirit lead us to unity, then it IS possible to be one body!
