By One Spirit

For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.

That which the Father has accomplished is wonder-full!
The same Seed in all of the rebirthed, and yet one would think that there is a Pentecostal, Charismatic, Baptist, Catholic, Greek Orthodox Jesus. What is this all about anyway?
Without the illuminating work of the Holy Spirit, we will strive for that which is already ours in Him.
The wonder of Him being able to uniquely express His life through each of us, and each displaying flavours and colours of His grace that makes the most beautiful sunset pale in comparrison.
In looking at a sunset, being part of a crowd, I'm sure each person would see their favourite colour, but in fact each is seeing that which is being reflected from the same sun.
No wonder Paul prayed so fervently for the eyes of our heart to be opened (and flooded with light) to "see" the same Jesus in all of the rebirthed.
