Ephesians 4:3 “(Be) eager to maintain the unity of the SPIRIT in the bond of peace.”
When ways stray from
CHRIST’s, disagreements arise…
where — by such dissensions —
HIS peace is dissolved. So!
When “What we say goes!”,
quickly far from the road are
our steps often changed into
victims who crawl.
Who cast off HIS written
directions in Scripture,
with injuries caused by
a blinded assault.
Self-inflicted as such,
so remind all of Flesh.
GOD’s ways are unchanging;
HIS grace makes us salt!
Bound with Light so remain
just on paths which HE made…
and Division will fade.
Thus — resolved!
As HIServant most focused on daily learning and displaying more of CHRIST’s heart,
Devotional: Any family member who does not cling to the truth of the WORD…will be default…cause others to stray from it.
Some such leanings are subtle while others are obvious. But GOD’s word is abundantly clear.
Titus 3:10 “As for a person who stirs up division, after warning him once and then twice, have nothing more to do with him…”
GOD’s WORD is also clear in regards to treating one another.
Romans 12:10 “Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.”
Hebrews 10:24 “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works…”
1 John 4:7 “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from GOD, and whoever loves has been born of GOD and knows GOD.”
But when someone inside the church cultivates division, then it’s off HIS paths.
They’re on their own road and with their own agenda. GOD clearly, once again, speaks against those who would divide.
Romans 16:17 “I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them.”
We see this also in 1 Corinthians 1:10 “I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment.”
GOD sets up and GOD sets down. GOD appoints and GOD removes.
As such, we all are under HIS authority to operate in love and without causing division.
Finally, James 4:10 says, “Humble yourselves in the sight of the LORD, and HE will lift you up.”
Amen and amen!
