“Keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” - Ephesians 4:3
September 14, 2012
What I learned from this devotion that in every fellowship in our lives may be it actual family, friends, church, and everything else… we have to be united under God’s banner. As a Christian, I have to be accepting of the fact that everyone is unique and that everyone has different needs. Unity can be achieved if selfishness within the fellowship does not exist.
In my situation, it shouldn’t matter which church I go to because Jesus himself prayed for unity among Christians - John 17:21 “That they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You.”. Christians should be united instead of doing things that ‘cause disunity. Who cares who the founder(s) of our church is, it doesn’t matter what name our church is called. When we set our eyes focused on God, only Him matters, only His glory matters, only His victory matters.
At the end of the day, it is all about God.
There is one body, we have one Lord. United in the Spirit, we are going forth.
