UNITY WITH THE BODY OF CHRIST
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! (Psalm 133:1)
WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT
Before Jesus was crucified, one of His prayers was that His brethren would be united (see John 17:11). As believers we are called the Body of Christ, which reveals we are to function in harmony. A divided body is unhealthy, and that is why we must strive for unity. Obviously, we will not all agree on everything. We may see certain Scriptures differently, misunderstand another’s intentions, or even feel hurt by someone in the church. Even in Scripture we see where the early church dealt with differences. This is why during communion, Paul said we are to discern the Lord’s Body (see 1 Cor. 11:27-29). Make a point to strive for oneness and ask the Lord to help you be a unifier in His Body!
