Lord, there is so much diversity in the body of Christ. We all come from various backgrounds and experiences but we all share the commonality of being children of God. We all share in the gift that was and is Jesus Christ. So awaken our souls to embrace this gift that we share: The gift of God’s truth, grace, mercy and love. So that we can live this life as the redeemed people that we are. If we say all the right words and do all the right things but don’t share the in the same love that we are given by God then we have missed the point. The point that we are all connected as one body through You, Lord, because You don’t see our mistakes of the past and instead sees us made new in Your glory and in Your grace. We are the light of the world. We are all sinners and we are all saints that can be the salt of the earth that spreads the truth of the Gospel that unites all of us in a bond with our Creator and each other until the end of the age.
