When I see pictures of people holding hands and doing things like this for a good cause like peace…I wonder about faith in each person there. I got inspired by this to talk about Christians and unity as one family in the body of JESUS Christ.
It is good to know that we who are believers are connected by faith to one body and that is of Christ JESUS. When you meet a true believer, as yourself they are your brother or sister in Christ. We need to remember this in our everyday lives for those who seek to destroy all who love JESUS is out there and causing all kinds of evil all around us. Psalm 37 clearly speaks of these kinds of people. Please click on the link below to read Psalm 37.
When we are connected in spirit we need to remember to look out for each other for the devil will distract any of GOD’s children away from HIM if he can. There is power in unity with those who love GOD and HIS son JESUS.
1 Corinthians 1:10 King James Version (KJV)
10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
We should pray for each other and give each other loving encouragement at all times. Put your brother or sister in the LORD 1st, and those that hate the LORD pray for them. For you know that those that seek to make you look bad by saying bad things about you or steal from you or what ever it is they seek to do that will hurt you are not of the LORD. They are the followers of satan and seek to do you or others like you and me in. Some are subtle or what is commonly called “micro aggressive”. And while others are bold and quite open about it ready to fight. But remember no matter what they seek to do, GOD is watching and has the last laugh. ALWAYS. GOD can not be defeated!
1 John 3:17
17 But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?
1 Timothy 5:8
8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
Ephesians 4 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
4 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, 2 with all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; 3 endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. 7 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. 8 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. 9 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? 10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) 11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14 that we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 but speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: 16 from whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, 18 having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: 19 who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. 20 But ye have not so learned Christ; 21 if so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: 22 that ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 23 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind; 24 and that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. 26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: 27 neither give place to the devil. 28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth. 29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. 30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: 32 and be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
Romans 10:9 New International Version (NIV)
9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Unity in the body of Christ is powerful and wonderful. It is a peaceful calm spirit we all can share and enjoy. Pray for all of your enemies and haters. Only GOD has the power to do HIS true and fair will with these people. Just remember whose family you belong to, and you will never be alone. The body of Christ Jesus our savior of our very souls. AMEN!
May all of you who do read my blog and share it too be blessed and never stressed! Have a blessed day, all day where ever you may go on GOD’s earth!
