YOU BELONG TO CHRIST

“Yet you belong to Christ”. 
1 Cor 3:23 NEB 
As a small child your sense of belonging will have been con- fined to your mother. Then father will have been added, with a growing sense of other attachments – siblings, a school, a city, a nation, a church, a political party, and all manner of lesser attachments. To whom you belong is important. Much of what we think and believe revolves round what groups or bodies we perceive ourselves to belong to. 
Before Paul arrived in Corinth (which is near to Athens), the people there had worshipped the goddess Aphrodite, the goddess of love. It had led to debauchery and sexual immorality to such an extent that Corinth had become a byword for filth. Then Paul came with the gospel of Jesus Christ. And some had come to believe and to give themselves to this new God – the God of a different kind of love. Those who believed had detached themselves from the worship of Aphrodite and now belonged to Christ. Then came the trouble as one great leader after another visited and ministered in the Christian community and the factions developed as a result of the contending loyalties of the three factions. Now Paul was saying, “You’ve got it wrong. You don’t belong to Paul. You don’t belong to Peter. You don’t belong to Apollos. You belong to Jesus”. 
Know who you belong to. You may be a Baptist but you belong to Christ. You may be a Catholic, a Congregationalist, a Lutheran, a Methodist, a Quaker or an Anglican. You still belong to Christ. Martin Luther used to say, “I am baptized, therefore I am a Christian”. You are a Christian, therefore you belong to Christ. 

PRAYER THOUGHT Lord, make me always conscious that I belong to you.
