Met part of my family today and who knew, they are here in Lusaka, Zambia. And they weren’t distance cousins, they were brothers and sisters. And the family resemblance was amazing. Their smile, just like my father. I instantly had this bond. When they spoke I heard phrases that sounded just like Someone I feel very close to. That’s how it is with family. You just feel a sense of belonging.
This week I have two Zambian partners who will be working with me all week. They will help me share Christ with 10 orphan boys here at Camp life. I met one of the partners today. His name was Eric. We had an immediate bond with each other. To hear him speak was like hearing one of my close brothers speak. We had such similar thoughts. We have such similar approach to life and family. Only one explanation makes any sense. He knows Jesus. Because of that we are part of not only the same family, but the same body. That oneness, that’s unity……….that’s the church.
so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.
