God has shown His people His purpose in everything through the Word of God. Ephesians 3:10-11 states, “God’s purpose in all this was to use the church to display his wisdom in its rich variety to all the unseen rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. This was his eternal plan, which he carried out through Christ Jesus our Lord.” His plan involves the church and using the church to display His wisdom. Isn’t that an amazing thing to think about? We, as His people (the church) can be His ambassadors and bear His name.
I have seen some churches who honor Him through their peace and unity and others who deny Him with their own selfish actions. I have been in services where I felt the Spirit leave because of the disunity amongst the body of Christ. I have also sat in services where the Holy Spirit was moving and working amongst the body of Christ. We, as a church, can either decide to be a part of His plan and work for Him, or work against Him for our own desires. We cannot do both.
Spend some time in prayer today for your own church, that they can serve the Lord and maintain peace and unity.
