Still Counting - Division
by Ed Young
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you (Matthew 28:19-20).
Division is defined as the act or process of separating things into parts. God is into division-he made the decision for division long ago. It is apparent in his very essence; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit-three in one, one in three.
He has also shown division in the local church. God divided gifts into people's lives to reflect himself within the church. Each of us has been given specific talents and gifts according to God's desire for the purpose of spreading his word. In other words, God has delegated his authority to each of us to complete his math.
Before he ascended to heaven, Jesus delegated the responsibility of spreading his message to his followers. You and I have been handed that responsibility. What God has placed in our lives, what he has divided among us, is there for the purpose of reaching others for his glory.
What has God divided into your life? What talents or gifts has God given to you? Use those gifts the way that he intended. Use them to complete his math. Because after all, that is how his equation will be completed-through you and me dividing Christ among other people who still count to God.
