MESSAGE:

Discrimination is a natural tendency among the morally depraved. Sometimes, the church unwittingly allows such vice to creep into it unnoticed.

This was the tendency Apostle Paul rebuked in the Corinthian church. He decried the attitude of some members of the body who assume a superior posture in their dealings with others.

He could not see any reason for pride as he noted that “those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness” (verse 23). Every Christian is, as it were, a subset of the whole set. There is need for all the subsets to function in harmonious relationship, to avoid working at cross-purposes with one another and in violation of the demands of Christ. The gifts of God in us are not for vain glory. They are to complement other gifts in other believers to edify the Church. Our virtues and personal characteristics must be tailored to make the body strong and functional for our prime mandate of evangelism.

God has put us in the Body of Christ as He wishes. None needs to feel inferior or superior to the other. It is unacceptable for believers to discriminate against one another. As products of unmerited grace, our disposition to each other must be one of humility, love, compassion and voluntary acceptance of each other’s worth before the Lord. We must not allow colour, gender, class or status to obscure our vision of other saints.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: It is unscriptural to discriminate in the church.

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Luke 17-19
