One of the excuses that I used to get out of writing was that there are a lot of writers out there. That didn't work because He came back with the fact that they are not me and won't see things the way I do. He wanted my point of view out there.
I'm going to go to what He used to get this point across to me. It is not the body. It is much colder. Since we are in the middle of Summer, why not cool off with some SNOW!
Each snowflake is different. There are no two that are the same. The reason is the variables in making it. Each drop of water is not pure H2O. The particulates that are mixed with the H2O has something to do with how it freezes. The conditions that are going on outside of that drop; wind, temperature, air pressure and so on have an effect on what the snow flake looks like.
I have never tried to count the amount of snowflakes that cover the yard. We don't say look at all the snowflakes that are covering the ground. Nor do we count how many snowflakes it takes to make the perfect ball to throw.
Snow is an all encompassing word. It can me one snowflake as it starts to fall or the 6 feet that was dumped in several hours. Snow is snow no matter how many individual flakes there are it is still snow.
Like wise with us. We are all part of one Church, the bride of Christ. Notice that I used a capital "C" for Church. This is a lot like snow. There are many churches that cover this Earth. Each of them have different ways of worshipping and different ways of teaching. They are all the same in the fact that they are the Church, the body of Christ.
Let's break it down further. Inside each church are the people. Everyone of us are different like the snowflakes. Yet, altogether we are the Church. Our job is to blanket the Earth with God's love, grace and truth.
Each of us has a different point of view on how we express it. That is because we each have different things that happened in our lives that shaped us. Just like the snowflake. Guess you can call us Jesus flakes.
We all have Jesus in common. Like snowflakes have H2O in common. That is why our differences have a place in serving the Church.
