“(A Song of degrees of David.) Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!”
King James Version (KJV)
Good morning all. I do pray that you all will have a blessed day n this day that the LORD has made!
We people are very hard-headed at times. I say this because of the things that we do. We at times try to do things our way and it fails. Instead of listening to our GOD and doing HIS perfect way. We people are no where being perfect.
And can not save ourselves from the sins we do. Yet some of us feel that just being a good person is okay with GOD and we will enjoy heaven when it is our time. Putting aside the fact that we are doing things our way. Even those of us who repent still need JESUS when we slip up from not being perfect. For JESUS is the key to unlock the door to heaven.
All this is to say humans can be stubborn and not get along with others, when we want to have things done our way. It can lead to misunderstandings and confusion when we do not take the time to just listen and think about what the other person is saying or trying to say to us.
Then there is a conflict of emotions that has to be dealt with that will divide people if turn our back to the person we have the issue with. And this could snowball into a silly feud of sorts OR WORSE.
Divisions of people who will not associate with one person or persons because of the rumours that was spreading from even just the 2 original people who did not get along without trying to make peace. Like a “The Hatfield and the McCoys feud” sort of thing. #GOOGLE this if you have not heard about it.

You know the bible is very clear about having a dispute with our Christian brethren.
Ephesians Chapter 4
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, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
“Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:”
King James Version (KJV)
When we do not take the time to go about forming unity then we are not doing GOD’S will. If we can not get along here on earth then…..do you think GOD will allow us to take this silliness into HIS house?
As followers of JESUS and His teachings of the word of GOD there is a bond among us through the blood of Christ. Just like you will see the secular people who will bond with each other. They will do so even in a meeting full of people. They have met for the very first time in life as though they have been friends since birth. Which is why when true Christians meet for the first time there is a bond as well, like you have met a long-lost cousin or sibling.
We have more power in us with the heart of JESUS than we can ever understand. It is so important that we carefully select who we are going to associate with in life. For not all people seek to do you well. You are not missing out on hanging out with secular people who do not love GOD or want to repent from the sins that they love. They will resent you and try to change you to love the sins that they love.
Starting with ourselves in our hearts. What is it that GOD will have us to do? Are we part of the problem? I have to check myself many times in prayer and reading GOD’S word. I need to be right and have GOD pleased with me. We can help to bring unity with these issues if we HAVE GOD LEAD US.
- Is there division in the home? Between the spouses and children? Are we taking the time to give each other attention, are we selfish and putting ourselves first? Do we put GOD first in all we do so that we have a clear path to righteousness?
- At work where there are clicks that gossip between and about others at work? The women who are comparing themselves with the women they are jealous of trying to give them a bad name? This sets a spiritual warfare in the office when certain people want to overlook others, speak evil of them in any way.
- In the Church where the members seek to have the glory and attention to themselves and not out GOD? Playing politics in the Church with favors and seeking preference over the other members of the Church. In doing so creating “Church Hurt”?
- Do we make stereotypical judgements on people we do not now, making a negative situation and uncomfortable atmosphere for them? Are we assuming things that are incorrect and acting out on it only because you feel it is right? As with people who do not look like they are part of your family or clan you feel are bad people? If you do these things you are making a division along with making these people feel uncomfortable around YOU. Many times those who are white may feel they need to treat people of color in a certain way because they have been raised to do so, and act nervous around people of color wind up making a un-GODLY situation. This is not a good thing. I tell you even in certain Churches there is division of sorts becasue of white is going on in their minds. The LORD GOD did not put this, confusion, hate and stereotypical thoughts in our minds because these thoughts cause division with people.
Matthew 7:1 – 7:5
1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam [is] in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
Unity is something that we need as Christians to encourage each other as we have to deal with all of the nonsense of the world that is distracting us from our LORD and SAVIOUR. If we do not uplift each other than we are like-minded with those who do not want any good for the tribe of JESUS.
“Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.”
King James Version (KJV)
It means when we support Christian prayer warriors, true believers, lovers of GOD and Christ JESUS we are united and boned in faith. You know how you feel when you are the only one from the tribe of JESUS in a room and the ones who are following the fallen one are against you? You will cling to a lover of JESUS as soon as you connect. Those who follow the fallen one will stand back for there is more power in you two or more than a whole room full of those that hate our saviour.
“And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.”
King James Version (KJV)
Let us aim for unity, peace and love for our mankind. May a blessing come to you with the reading of this blog and for the word of GOD. Always have your Bible to read as you read my blogs or anyone elses. For you need to know what is true or false about the word. Just don’t take their word for it. See for yourself. Some may have one good sermon and all other posts way off.
Share and pass it forward so others maybe blessed.
