After writing about Politics last week and how we are so divided in this country it made me want to do just one follow up. Mandisa has a great song called “We all bleed the same” that addresses this problem in a great way. Her question is:
We all bleed the same
We’re more beautiful when we come together
We all bleed the same
So tell me why, tell me why
The song has a great response on coming together that has a powerful message. You will have to listen to the whole song to get the impact on what it means to come together instead of being divided… here is a blurp.
If we’re gonna fight
Let’s fight for each other
If we’re gonna shout
Let love be the cry

I was listening to Erwin McManus on Sunday and his sermon on feeding of the 5,000 had me thinking about what we should be doing to heal the divisions of our nation. First of all we need to know that “God wants to see what he can do through you not in you”. When God tells us to feed the 5,000 as he did to the Disciples, the Disciples wanted to send them away – Is that we do today when Christ tells us to go into all the nation and tell the people about Him…. do we send them away to someone else.
When it comes to Divisions how many times do we just want to run instead of being engaged? I have to say at times I run from controversy instead of engaging with the Love of Jesus to the issue of division. We need to “Expand our influence in the world – Jesus needs to be working through us to feed the 5,000”. We need to focus on what we have instead of what we want to have to equip us to evangelize – Christ will supply the rest.
Did you know that the miracle of feeding the 5,000 was Jesus’s Miracle for his Disciples by supplying them with the food and it was the Disciples Miracle to the people by feeding the 5,000? We need to take Ownership of being the stewards that Jesus wanted us to be. If we remember that everything I have belongs to God and just be obedient in using it… WE CAN FEED THE 5,000.
The miracle that people are waiting for is from us we just need to allow Jesus to work through us!
You can heal Divisions by feeding the 5,000 with the Love of Jesus!
Remember: “We all bleed the same!”
So Engage today and feed his people and be United!!!
