Word for Today:  September 2

Be a healer

I’m not talking about laying hands on the sick.  I’m talking about healing relationships.  Healing divisions.  Healing differences.    Building bridges and not walls.  Take down the fences and open the gates.

Our past religious traditions have built enough walls, we are called to tear them down and build bridges in their place.

According to the Word, believers are living stones.  We are to be collectively built up into a Spiritual House (not houses, plural) but a House (singular).

Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house…   1Pet 2:5

In the past we have been divided, and put in piles…. separate piles.  Different piles.  Race piles, culture piles.  Diverse piles.  God wants us to be One Pile not many piles.

  • We have had Baptist piles
  • Methodist piles
  • Catholic piles
  • Presbyterian piles
  • Pentecostal piles
  • Episcopalian piles
  • White piles
  • Black piles
  • Hispanic piles
  • Asian piles
  • Native American piles
  • Rich piles
  • Poor piles
  • Educated piles
  • Uneducated piles

God is calling us to One Pile so that He can build a Spiritual House… and that is what happens when we make a determined effort to heal broken and bruised relationships.

Be a Healer
