The Beauty of Music, the Body of Christ

“All of you together are Christ’s body, and each of you is a part of it.” 1 Corinthians 12:27 New Living Translation

There is a special kind of beauty in music when diverse instruments come together. Each instrument might sound lovely on its own, but something magical happens when unique individual sounds weave together. It creates a harmony with richness and depth, but these tapestries of sound are only possible when each instrument works in concert with the others.

Our God is a master composer. He created each one of us to have a beauty all our own, but we were never meant to live and work in isolation. He meant for us to come together as the body of Christ here on Earth. When we work with each other in harmony through the love that He has given us, truly amazing things can happen. When we value each person’s unique abilities and bear with each other in love, it not only creates a powerful hymn of praise to our Creator, but it also brings light and beauty to a dark discordant world.

Won’t you join me in praying this prayer?

Dear God, when all we can see are our differences, help us to come together in You. Give us the grace to use the unique gifts you have given us to Your glory. Help us to work in harmony so that we can do more for your Kingdom here on Earth. Amen
