Perfect bonding in Christ through charity
Colossians 3:14 - And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
The quickest way to bond with Jesus Christ is via charity. Charity is greater than love, better still I would put as - the magnification of love. In charity we working in love help others to prosper without any personal motive, this churns out true love from within us.
Only looking after other's worldly needs is not perfect charity. Our focus of prospering the person should be building the person in all three areas; body, mind (soul) and spirit.
It is charity that binds the different parts of the body of Christ together. It is the lack of this which is the reason of the breakup of the Church and the cause of so many ministries which do not co-ordinate with each other. The urgent need of the Church today is charity. The Church needs to be put on drips of bottles and bottles of charity as in an ICU.
It is charity that will bring the Church together and make many of our problems to disappear, because we would glorify God united.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord Jesus, You showed us true love by the charity that bought You on earth as man and as a sacrifice for our sins. Lord, show us to imitate You and to exhibit this property of charity unto others. Bring your body (churches) together with this glue - charity. Teach each an every individual, especially the leaders the true meaning and importance of charity. I make this prayer in your mighty Name, Amen.
[ Reference Scripture ]
12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
|The Word of God was given free to us, therefore we should also share it freely with others.
