Psalm 133:1 “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!”

Ephesians 4:1-6 “I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.”

It’s an interesting thing reading these scriptures then looking at this world and the conflict that it is engaged in. Every time you turn on the news or read a paper you see more anger and bitterness being expressed towards one another. The sad thing is we understand that this world is in the shape that it’s in as a result of sin. But what about the church, do we feel justified for our reasons for division.

Oddly enough even though there may be several churches in our communities, there is a great deal of unity and appreciation for one another. I believe that if there was a need in my life, that I would have many in this valley that would come to my rescue and I would be willing to do the same for them. Our relationship with Jesus Christ will always be that common element that brings us together.

2 Corinthians 5:16-21 “Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh…

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”
