“May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus.” Romans 15:5
There is no doubt that a house divided against itself, shall fall. When there is no unity among believers, then there will be strife. There is much chaos going on in the church of God and among believers these days and they look as if the discords are meant to destabilise the people of God.
When we are in the church, and we envy one another, or we are jealous of each other, or we talk endlessly against another brethrens, then there won’t be peace.
God calls us so that we can partake in His glory, to live out our entire lives for Him, to be different in everything we do so that people can differentiate us from the unbelievers.
But when we do not show that we truly are Christians, but we go on showing and behaving like the unbelievers, then what happened to the image of Christ in our lives?
We need unity to conquer the world. And for this, we must pray, pray and pray at all times to God to help us, to gives us the unity we need to live our Christian life.
There is no need living for the downfall of other. We don’t gain anything in wishing bad or evil to our fellow brothers. We must unite, love, and cherish one another.
God gives us this assignment for His own glory and honour, so that the entire world will come to Him through us.
Make it your earnest duty to bring peace to the lives of your fellow Christians, to love them, to support them, to make it openly known to them that you are indeed for Christ and not the other way round.
