Good Morning.

And when a stranger dwells with you and wants to keep the Passover to the Lord, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as a native of the land. For no uncircumcised person shall eat it. One law shall be for the native-born and for the stranger who dwells among you.” (Exodus 12:48-49)

To accentuate the point made yesterday about unity and being one, take note of the fact that God clearly states that are not to be two sets of laws among His people. There isn’t one set of rules for the native born and then another set of rules for the stranger who comes into the family. To allow for such would create a tremendous amount of confusion and would eventually lead to “every man doing whatever is right in his own eyes.” If you don’t believe that is true, then just look around you and observe what is going on in our world today. Mankind is creating chaos because feelings have usurped facts and logic; our wants and desires have relegated law and order to the ash heap. The end result will not be good.

It must not be the way among God’s people. We are duty bound to acknowledge that He alone is the final arbiter of truth and justice. Therefore, if He said it then it is our obligation to do it. Again, we can’t be one people if we determine to live by various codes of conduct that we have prescribed. In that vein, I would like to the reader to consider just how united (or divided) the Church really is currently. Then compare that to how many denominations and diverse doctrines there are within the Body.

The Apostle Paul wrote to the congregation in Ephesus that, “There is one body, and one Spirit, even as you are called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all” (Ephesians 4:4-6). In other words, there are not multiple families of God but one. If there are not multiple families then there shouldn’t be multiple faiths, codes and callings  -– there is one. And the One “who is above all” sent His Son to die in order that we might be one. So then, let us do our part and embrace the ways of our Father and live in a way that says to the world, “As God’s people, we are one.”


Blessings and Shalom,
