Today, Christianity has spread throughout the world. It is present in different nations, and composed of different nationalities. In our churches, we may notice that members are from different ethnicities and races. But these differences shall not stop us from belonging in a singular belief in the same God. Our color or traditions may be different, but our faith is the same. Let us strengthen this faith together and bridge boundaries despite differences.

Build relationships

Creating and nurturing connections with each other is the best way of building relationships. Once a relationship is present, there is then an avenue of trust. People who trust each other let their guards down and develop a relationship. Through vulnerability, growth occurs. Friendship shortens the gap between two individuals. No matter how different two people are, if they see each other as friends, a connection is built.

Respect

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” – Luke 6:31

How you treat people reflects how they will treat you. Hence, if you want people to treat you the proper way, you should do the same. Build that bridge despite differences by respecting one another.

Teamwork

“If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be?  If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be?  But in fact, God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.  If they were all one part, where would the body be?  As it is, there are many parts, but one body.” 1 Corinthians 12:17-20

We should work like one body because we are a body founded on the same central belief in Jesus Christ. Hence, we should learn to work with each other. Each of us has its own function, duties, and purpose in life. We should strive to attain our goals and finish our duties by being willing to give and accept help from others. Teamwork is about reaching your goals together.

Professionalism

Once everyone is working together, everyone must practice professionalism. There will be problems that each member may encounter because of differences, and if these problems arise, then everyone must work and show respect for the cause of Christ. Remember, the Lord is bigger than our differences or the gap between each of us. He is an invisible thread that binds us together.

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what the will of God is, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” – Romans 12:2

Closing Thoughts

Let us do what is good, acceptable, and perfect, despite our problems and differences; that is professionalism.
