Why, when all logic says we’d all be better off if we worked together, do we quarrel and fight, wage war, steal, cheat and lie? We see the evidence all around us – from the war in Ukraine to party politics to strikes to on-line abuse to planning applications to church demoninations.
Jesus calls (and prays) for his followers to be one (eg see John 17) so, as Christians, we need to be different. But how?
I was reminded of a song by Michael Fry which may give us a clue:
Jesus, Be the Centre, be my source, be my light, be my hope, be my song, be the fire in my heart, be the wind in these sails, be the reason that I live, Jesus.
“There is one body and one spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called.” Eph 4:4
