1 Corinthians 1: 10

Posted: August 22, 2010 in Uncategorized

In the past few days I have been doing a study on the book of Corinthians in the Bible. I felt as if though God were leading me to this specific part in the Book, so I began reading. A lot of verses are speaking strongly to me in this, yet there’s one specific one that I want to share.

I appeal to you, dear brothers and sisters, by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, to live in harmony with each other. Let there be no divisions in the Church. Rather be of one mind, united in thought and purpose.- 1 Corinthians 1:10

I don’t know why but when I read this verse, my immediate thought was of the worship team. I’m so thankful that God has brought all of us so much close over the past couple years and that we are even continuing to grow in Unity. I know it’s hard, especially with some hectic practices we seem to have, but being united as ONE in the idea that we are emptying our souls out in the music we play for God is such an important aspect of our ministry. We’re the ones the congregation looks to Sunday mornings for example. If we’re not united amongst each other, it will without a doubt reflect on stage when we’re up there. This is just my opinion but, if we as the worship team can’t find unity and are divided, I feel like that can and maybe will effect the church as a whole.  Paul didn’t write that letter to the people of Corinth as a little slap on the wrist. No, he writes with such passion and sincerity in 1 Corinthians about how the church should be. Let’s take his words to heart and live it out.

United we stand…. Divided we fall.
