…agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose.Philippians 2:2b
One body, One Purpose
God wants His people to work together in love and unity. The Bible talks about Christ being the head of the church. God created the church to glorify him, but we can only do that when we are working together in love and unity. This verse says to agree wholeheartedly with each other. Does that mean we have to always think the same? No, God created us differently for a reason but we must be able to come to agreements and work together so the church can thrive. We must work together with one mind and purpose. That purpose is to bring glory to God and spread his name.
As a church body we should never let trivial things come between us and the work that God is doing. Many churches have split because they can’t come to an agreement. I have even heard of a church splitting over what types of chairs to have in their building! We can go so far away from our purpose as Christians sometimes. So work hard to agree with others to serve one purpose for God.
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you for our differences as a body of Christ. Thank you for being the purpose that drives us and keeps us together. Amen.
