I don’t believe there is anything that grieves the Holy Spirit like strife among the members of the Body of Christ. That does not mean we all agree on every detail or every doctrine but we are not going to allow disagreement to move into strife and then into division. The Lord tore down the division wall that once separated us and now we are one body with one head. Jesus prayed in John 17 that we would all be one just as the Father and Son are one. That is a large prayer to answer but I believe the Holy Spirit will bring all of us to a place of unity as we walk together to establish His kingdom in the earth.
(Rom 15:5 NIV) “May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus” This scripture in Romans show us that it is the Lord who gives a spirit (attitude) of unity. It is not a work of the flesh but a work of the Holy Spirit. Let’s agree with the Holy Spirit that we will walk together in unity in 2007.
