“There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” ― Galatians 3:28
Choosing where to fellowship is important because it gives the worshiper an opportunity to plug in and build deeper relationships with others. Unfortunately, by default, many people gravitate towards their kind because they want comfort; this is contrary to the missional call on our lives. Instead of assimilating, many immigrants end up in clusters that are not equipped and empowered enough to maximize their presence in the country. This unfortunate situation can be avoided.
This subject cannot be handled in its totality here because there are too many facets to it, but you are being challenged to dig deeper and understand God’s call upon your life. The issue being raised here is dear to my heart and has been one of those things I believe the Lord brought me to the United States of America to speak and to write about. The segregation in the body of Christ is an affront to the Gospel message of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Can somebody explain why we all mix at work, in the shopping centers, on the trains and buses, and in movie theaters, but on Sunday morning we all go our separate ways?
