The Upper Room Devotional for 7th January 2023

Just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. – 1 Corinthians 12:12 (NRSV)

When my husband invited me to go shopping for building materials at a hardware store, I saw the many different types of materials used to make buildings. I realized how many materials are required to build a house, including sand, cement, bricks, nails, tile, and wall paint, to name just a few.

Indeed, the materials we bought do not look like they will form a building. But in the hands of skilled builders, the raw materials will come together to form a beautiful house.

Likewise, it seems that as Christians our purpose may be difficult to determine alone. But if we join with other Christians in community, our purpose becomes clearer. Christians need one another. Some lead worship, some play music, some share God’s word, and so on. This wonderful unity strengthens us. It is beautiful when Christians build each other up and work together to serve God.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear God, thank you for the fellowship of other Christians. Help us to build each other up and find unity in our faith communities. Amen.

PRAYER FOCUS
For unity in my church
