Walls


In Northeast Pennsylvania our stone walls in the farming areas are a part of our heritage and I have sometimes done a bit of repair to rebuild them. But as beautiful as they are it is important to think carefully about what walls we build in the spiritual realm of our lives. One of the principal works of Jesus is to tear down walls that separate us from each other and from Him.

For Christ himself has brought peace to us. He united Jews and Gentiles into one people when, in his own body on the cross, he broke down the wall of hostility that separated us Ephesians 2:14

 

I also love the advice from Robert Frost, because the more we keep others out, the more we keep ourselves in.

 Mending Wall
” Before I built a wall I’d ask to know
What I was walling in or walling out,
And to whom I was like to give offence.
Something there is that doesn’t love a wall, ”

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
