Followers of Jesus Christ (Christians) are called to operate in love. We must care for one another – without an iota of selfishness so that God can be glorified in all ramifications.
Bible promotes the unity of brethren as quoted,
“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching (Hebrews 10:25 NJKV)”
Christians’ togetherness will yield many fruits for God’s kingdom.
Paul admonished Christians at Corinth to shun selfishness but work together as a team for the purpose of glorifying God.
Believers’ love will lead to promotion of gospel; it will motivate unbelievers to come closer and find a reason to serve God.
Paul chastised Corinthians brethren,
“Therefore when you come together in one place, it is not to eat the Lord’s Supper. For in eating, each one takes his own supper ahead of others; and one is hungry and another is drunk” (1 Corinthians 11:20-21).
Love Affirmation and Its Impact to Christianity
Love is the true symbol of Christianity, and all Christians must practice it to glorify God.
Believers’ exercise of true love will go a long way to aid gospel expansion.
Love will help Christians stay together and remain strong. It is declared in the Bible,
“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life forevermore (Psalm 133 KJV).”
As Christ’s followers, believers must have common voice to uphold the biblical principles in our corrupt society.
Anti gospel folks cannot prevail in their ungodly campaigns against gospel if believers are steadfastly united!
The unity of brethren will force our opponents to re-evaluate their negative intents and change the course of action.
All Christians must understand that nothing significant can be achieved until we stay together and operate as a community.
Our collective efforts as unified children of God will yield great results that will promote God’s name and put devil to shame!
Prayer of Unity in the body of Christ
Dear God, please bring the body of Christ together and let us act in unity. Grant each Christian a loving heart to accommodate other brethren.
Help each Christian and denomination to shun segregation and obey your call for true love.
Enable the fold of Christ to raise the banner of love that will uphold your righteousness as a community of believers.
Please help brethren and churches to overcome all our challenges, so that we can have the strength needed to keep propagating your gospel throughout the world.
Please do these things and many more. For in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen
