“I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.” 1 Corinthians 1:10 The only way to be perfectly united is to be In Christ/InTheSpirit. The Bible tells us, that “He who is joined to the Lord is one spirit.” 1 Corinthians 1:17.“So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:26-28
Oh silly racism that is dividing the World, may it not enter the Church. May we keep the Oneness in Christ. May the Lord continue to renew our minds and build us up in one another. Last night a few of us had the opportunity to address racism in the USA. It’s becoming quite ridiculous and although racism is very much alive in the World may it not become alive in the Church. Culturely we may be different, race we may be different in the physical sense but those that are in Christ are One in spirit. May we never forget this. May we be united in the Church and shine bright as the Sun so the World may see our oneness and praise Our Father who has. Given us the ability to be one.
May we not fake the oneness, may we truly be one in Spirit. May we practice oneness. I’m so very thankful for a ministry that continues to practice oneness and realize that we are not One in ourselves but only in Christ. A ministry that realizes that we must practice being in spirit by turning our hearts and entire being to the Lord. We are divided in ourselves you all and we must be totally disqusted with this so we may turn to Lord immediately when we realize we are not in the Lord. Remember we are being perfected and have not arrived at perfection so if division arrives within you REPENT, seek forgiveness. This Oneness is beautiful and sacred.
I remember this one time we had a meeting with believers in Houston and one of the believers said to me that she was deeply impressed by all of the different nationalities and ethnicities. But I will tell you that I was impressed that I met a people that had were One in spirit. I met a people that agreed on the basics in the Bible (John 3:16). Sure one might say oh I don’t eat meat and another might say Oh I eat meat and this is fine even the Bible says this in Romans 14:23 that we must do what we do according to faith. But let us not be divided when it comes to the basics of the Bible that God so loved the World, loving our neighbor as we love our self (Mark 12:31) Loving God above all else, seeking first the kingdom of God and It’s righteousness (Matt 6:33) THESE are not up for to debate in the church.
The World will never know oneness. Sure the World will fake oneness or even agree on certain things or have some common ground. Some corporations try to make it look as if they are one team with one goal and this may be so for a while but surely their thoughts aren’t the same. BUT in Christ we are truly ONE even down to our thoughts we are One. Christ and God there was no separation as there should be no separation in ourselves. “On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.” Oh may we continue to come into the realization we are truly One in Him.❤️
Church, we must get in formation. Paul wrote to Churches regarding division because He wasn’t blind to the World’s condition but very aware that we are not of the World anymore because we are new creatures born of the spirit. Through faith in Christ may we practice Oneness and be quick to repent when any thought of divisions arises. The Bible tells us that, “We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”
Lord Jesus continue to make us One! Continue to be the head Lord reminding us of your Word. May we not be shaken but stand firmly in One spirit as a testimony to this World that “He who is joined to the Lord is one spirit”. May we enjoy you daily as our portion being washed clean from all evil and being built together as One body, your beautiful Bride the Church❤️ Amen.
