Be In Unity


“I appeal to you, dear brothers and sisters, by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, to live in harmony with each other. Let there be no divisions in the church. Rather, be of one mind, united in thought and purpose.”
— ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭1‬:‭10‬‬NLT


Paul calls on the Corinthian Christians to be unified and in harmony with each other. He is not saying that we should always agree with each other. But we are still to be unified as Jesus is the head over us.

This past Sunday, Pastor Matt Higa spoke of how we should be peacemakers, settling differences and working toward unity within the church. This reminded us that we should be ready to make peace with those we may disagree with. It is not just keeping things peaceful by overlooking differences. Conversely, we should actively bring peace and unity in our relationships within the body of believers.

Being peacemakers will require us to be cautious about gossip and grumbling. These things poison the body, eventually leading to fractures and amputation from the body of Christ.
We need to watch our lips that we are spreading encouragement and compassion to those in our church. In conflicting views, we need to be able to sit and talk them through so we don’t end up with a body fighting over what each feels is the best.

Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you so much for Jesus! Thank you for allowing us to be part of the Body of Christ. I ask that you give us the boldness to be peacemakers. Grant us self-control to keep us from gossiping or complaining. Let our eyes be continually on You as we are made to be more like Jesus. Help us to be unified in the Spirit. I love you and ask of this in Your Name, Jesus. Amen!
