1 Corinthians 3:3-4 3 You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere humans? 4 For when one says, “I follow Paul,” and another, “I follow Apollos,” are you not mere human beings? (NIV)

This still applies to so many regular, very committed church goers today.  For when one says, “I am Methodist, I am Baptist, I am Pentecostal” and on and on.  We jealousy brag about our own particular denominational choice and quarrel over the minor differences.  As a hospital chaplain, I’m often asked what church I’m with.  I never answer that question.  My answer is I believe and follow Jesus Christ, the only Son of God Who gave His life for my sins and rose from death that I may have life eternally with God.  This is what we are to be about.  We are to spread the good news of the grace and love of God through His Son, Jesus Christ.  Let us remember, since we are the temple of God because His Holy Spirit is in us, we are holy vessels.  Let us go beyond being worldly.  Let us be united in the love of our God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
