The Body of Christ is diverse, varied, and colourful wherever if finds it expression. It’s easy to allow this diversity to result in disunity, and differences to result in disharmony. However, at its best, the Body of Christ celebrates diversity, allows for differences in practice, and strives for true unity. This unity isn’t uniformity; even though we aren’t all the same, we recognise we are striving towards the same prize: Jesus. At its best, the Body of Christ forgets all else except the pursuit of Jesus, his will, and his Kingdom come. In humility, we cast down all idols, and reject anything that hinders us from experiencing true community and true unity. As we minister to a dying world, we keep our eyes on the prize, never forgetting who we are and who He is. Thus, we are one, but many.
