I may be a little bias, but worshipping in song at the praise service last night was one of the greatest Sunday nights we’ve had here at BHBC. We truly serve a God worthy of worship. Not only did we get to do that as a church, but we also got to sing alongside Brown Hutcherson Ministries. Unity is one of the applications of the gospel; Paul explains it like this in Galatians 4:1-4a: “I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit…” Even in the church we can build passive barriers, relational walls that separate us from each other. These barriers can be physical traits like gender, age, or race, but they can also be things like past experiences, discomfort, or unfamiliarity. Christ’s shed blood covers everyone and unites those who believe in Him. Therefore, we should constantly be aware of our barriers preventing us from loving others well and actively destroy them.
