John 17:8-11 (NKJV) For I have given to them the words which You have given Me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came forth from You
Oneness is something that moves the heart of God. It’s not like He didn’t realize when He was making us that we would all be different. One of the most amazing things about our Father is the creativity that He showed in making us all unique. While it’s a fact that He made all that we see at His creation, I think the most amazing part of His creation is us. None of us have ever met even one human who is exactly like another. While we may at times have things in common, it is an absolute fact that none of us are the same. Yes, He knew He was making us with a uniqueness that was all our own. With all that said, it still requires us to walk in oneness where His Word is concerned. None of us can look at another part of the body and suddenly declare that we no longer see value in that particular part. None of us can say as a foot that a hand is not valuable. None of us can say as a hand that the ear or the eye has no value. In the same way, none of us who are white can say to one who is brown that “you have no value” and vice-versa.
God fully expects us to love one another. Since God is not a respecter of persons, we can’t be either. God is moving on this earth to speak to us with a very important message. I think that message is to call us out of our prejudices. I think God wants to remind us that it was “oneness” that moved His heart to pour out His Spirit in the first church. If that was true for the church in Acts, it is also true for the church in America. I am a firm believer that we need an outpouring in the Body of Christ at this moment. If the current church wants to see a move like the first church saw, we need to come together in love as the first church walked in. The Bible reminds us that they had everything in common. If they did it, we can too.
