When I was a child, my parents owned an old Suzuki snowmobile
As an adult, the first snowmobile I owned was a Polaris. Now, many years later, I have a Skidoo.
On our last snowmobile trip, we met couples from all over Ontario and Quebec. They rode different machines from Arctic Cats to Yamahas. Everyone had a reason that they particularly liked the make of snowmobile they rode.
And although we all had different machines, we had one thing in common; a love of snowmobiling.
I’ve noticed a similar trait in Christian circles
I have friends who are Lutheran, Catholic, and Free Methodist. I know people who attend Anglican and Dutch Reform churches.
But we all have one thing in common; a love of Christ.
All those different snowmobiles could probably operate using the same oil and gas. In various denominations, whether we are United or Baptist, or any other denomination, we operate in the same Spirit, read the same Bible, and sing the same worship songs.
As Christians, we are called to love one another as Christ loves us.
“Greet one another with a kiss of love. Peace to all of you who are in Christ” (1 Peter 5:14, NIV).
