A Life that Promotes Unity

One of the characteristics of a Christian is that of unity with other believers. The Lord considered this so important that it is one of things that He prayed for before He was crucified.

John 17:22,23 The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me.

It is pleasant to us and pleasing to the Lord when we dwell together in unity. Notice that the Word says to dwell together. The Lord has called us to be in community with each other.

Psalm 133:1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brothers to dwell together in unity!

The Lord says to put on love which is the perfect bond of unity. Love is to characterize us as Christians. Love is considering someone else more important than ourselves.

Colossians 3:14 put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity.

The source of our love for others is not the person that we are seeking to love but God. When we are filled with the Lord and His Spirit then we will be filled with His love for others.

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

It is by our love for one another that people will know that we are Christians and are His children.

John 13:35 By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.

When I was younger I read in the Bible that the Lord came to give me an abundant life and also that if I would trust Him then I would never be disappointed. These were incredible promises and so I decided to see if they were true. That was almost fifty years ago. What I have written are the truths that the Lord has taught me through His Word and I found them to be true every time. The Bible is the lecture and life is the lab. If a truth does not hold up in the lab then it can not be counted on. Every one was true and I have sought to build my life on these truths. We have a family business and four adult children. I wish that I could give my life to everyone but since I can't, I can share the truths that kept me from needless stress and pain. My marriage is the closest thing to heaven on earth. We are more "in love" than ever before and our children bring us great joy. I realize that not everyone will agree with everything that is written. I did not always agree either until I put it to the test. The Bible says that "wisdom will be vindicated by her deeds". The fruit from these truths have been sweet for me. May you be richly blessed as I have been. If you are struggling with life or with finding and keeping love in your life then please consider reading these posts. They have been tested and are true.
