Context: I’ve tested negative for covid three times now, so despite my continuing fatigue, I decided to face yesterday’s scheduled pain treatment at the hospital. As I entered the building I began to pray for everyone there and for those around me in the busy foyer. Then I suddenly saw the oneness of all humanity, even though we temporarily inhabit separate, fragile bodies during our time on earth.
There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:28; NLT).
With joy, I see at last
That all are one –
One mind, one heart, one soul,
Though billions strong.
We lodge in separate bodies, Lord,
Yet all remain forever
One in you.
You are all one in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:28; NLT).
Your immortal spirit is in every one of them (Wisdom of Solomon 12:1; GNTA).
