Freedom isn’t free and peace in a fallen world comes at a price. Maybe you reflected last Monday on the progress toward equality that Martin Luther King Jr. sacrificed for in his leadership during the Civil Rights Movement. Perhaps while our new Commander and Chief was sworn in, you considered the military he will lead that sacrifices for us for a living. As you interact with fellow believers, remember the sacrifice that Jesus made to eliminate every possible division amongst you all.

Pray that our understanding of our union with Christ increase and be the glue that unites us all.

Ephesians 2:14
For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility.
