Unity is Hard Work, But it is What We are Called To

Weekend Musings

The next time you are tempted to give up the fight, to give up working at the hard work of making “church work,” the next time you want to just pick up and move on to another fellowship, the next time you think that there must be a greener pasture, remember these words:

… walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

There is but

one body
one Spirit–just as you were called to the
one hope that belongs to your call–
one Lord,
one faith,
one baptism
one God and Father of all …  (Ephesians 4:1-6)

Remember. Pray. And get back to work, (perhaps with tears), and help the bride of Christ become in experience what Christ already sees her to be because of his shed blood on her behalf.

Enjoy your weekend.

  1. But what if someone feels that going to the church they are a part of is hurting their walk in Christ more than it is helping them? Example: They feel so judged and hurt, they can’t concentrate on the message the church is proclaiming biblical or not.Then, in my opinion, maybe a different fellowship would be better for them. But you are right also, that we should strive to be unified in the body whenever possible.
