This is a bag of blood and I’m sure you would agree with me that it is a precious thing. Indeed without blood circulating around our bodies would die. But look at it again and ask yourself who has it come from.
Has it come from someone who is English, has it come from someone who is Scottish, has it come from someone who is Welsh, has it come from someone who is Irish, has it come from someone who is French, has it came from someone who is German ,has it come from someone who is Italian has it come from someone who is Spanish, has it come from someone who is from Belgium, has it come from someone who is from Holland. The thing is that none of us know.
What I am trying to say here is that we are far less different that some would have us made out to be. Some people for whatever reason like to play upon our differences in order to divide us but the truth is we all bleed and one day we will all die to this life.
The differences that we seem to have are far less important than what we have in common. The things that unite us makes us stronger the things that divide us makes us weaker and able to be picked off by those who would do us harm.
We know that there are many who would divide us, brother from brother, sister from sister, father from son, daughter from mother. They have done that over the last few years but I tell you God doesn’t do that and I tell you why that is so it is because we are one in Christ.
