IF we are one….

This is so good and is such a word in season. The discord and bickering among the body has been so on my heart lately, then J. D. writes this. (PLEASE read his blog, and if possible help support Citi Impact. They do such wonderful work worldwide. AND they are just really nice people, too!)

“UBUNTU”

 Reblogged from CitiIMPACT Missions:

He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told the kids that who ever got there first won the sweet fruits. When he told them to run they all took each others hands and ran together, then sat together enjoying their treats. When he asked them why they had run like that as one could have had all the fruits for himself they said: ”UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?’‘

Philippians 2:3 “Do nothing out of conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.” I’m doing a Reblog from our CitiIMPACT Missions today com as it tied in perfectly to a few things I was going to write today in general. Over the years we’ve been involved in missions and ministry, we have often seen that “a whole lot of nothing” often stands in the way of “a whole lot of something”. Many non-Christians have to witness in-fighting between territorial missions and churches, even disaster response groups, that don’t reflect a lot of love or unity. Truly, the Great “I AM” clearly wanted us to all be the “WE ARE” in Him. John 17 in the HolyBible is clear on this. Undeniably so much of how the non-Christian world operates and thinks has far too long invaded the Church of our Lord Jesus Christ, His Church, His Kingdom. It’s important to remember that He is the head of The Church. How now then shall we live? How now then DO we live? Let’s press on to the high mark of His calling and allow the Great I AM to lead us into being the WE ARE that He intends. I’m quite sure we’ll see more fruit that remains in all categories of life when together we reach for and share the fruit together. UBUNTU! Blessings to you! JD Smith
