Sometimes the body of Christ gets out of sync. Our relationships with one another are strained by some hurt, some injury, or some misunderstanding. Many of us have been tempted to isolate or move somewhere else when the body gets out of sync. Hurt amongst believers can become like a cancer that no one cure and eventually every party loses energy to try. But perhaps our solution isn’t so different from the solution for our physical bodies. We need to see a great physician.
In Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, he gave the church instructions on how to rightly treat their fellow believers and so remain unified as the body of Christ. We can follow these instructions and stay unified together as the body of Christ.
