34,000 Denominations United in Showing God’s Love

For You From The Word

Over all these virtues put on love, which binds all together in perfect unity. (Colossians 3:14)

For You To Think About

worship crowd united togetherAt last count, Christianity is made up of 33,830 denominations. Most differ only slightly on doctrine.

Christians have long asserted that “what unites us is greater than what divides us” – that is, that together they treasure a foundational love for Christ and the desire to follow His teachings of love, grace, forgiveness, and hope – in spite of other differences.

In other words, a love for Jesus is the bridge that unites Christ-followers as they serve those in need.

A woman or man who faces an unplanned pregnancy is not as much concerned with whether to be sprinkled or immersed when baptized.  Traditional or contemporary-style worship is not a burning issue. Nor is pre-millennial or post-millennial theology.

But rather, a woman or man who faces an unplanned pregnancy desperately needs to know that God loves them. He forgives them. He will provide for them and the child.

Christians of any stripe agree: we can work together to share that incredible hope.

For You to Pray

Gracious Father,
Thank You for providing the bridge to our salvation: Jesus Christ. Move in the hearts of Your people to be united as we serve those in need. Let us put on love for You, for women and men who face an unplanned pregnancy, and for each other.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
