Don’t allow divisions to form in the Church
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 10/01- “Papa God’s Divine Purpose Is Preeminent!” (1 Corinthians 1:10)
Premise Question: Being that harmony, without any divisions in the church, is The LORD’s great desire for His Church—The Company of The Redeemed; why does it appear not to be so, and is not a regular practice or achievable endeavor, that is successfully happening on an ongoing basis?
“I appeal to you, dear brothers and sisters, by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, to live in harmony with each other. Let there be no divisions in the church. Rather, be of one mind, united in thought and purpose.”
(1 Corinthians 1:10 NLT)
Upon the authority of The Name, which is above every name, Jesus Christ, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, I earnestly request, my dearly beloved and cherished friends, that you, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, consider my urgent plea, from your renewed spiritual side. Say yes, at every opportunity, to be at peace and in agreement with one another, as to what you say and do. Say no, to being or allowing divisive and fractious behavior, in your midst, by takings sides against each other, in matters that are neither intrinsic nor eternal. Rather, choose to follow the blessed way of harmonious unity, by being deliberate, with diligence, in coming together and being of one mind, one heart and one purpose; which is Papa God’s divine purpose for each of us, in His Glorious Church. (1 Corinthians 1:10 PDCP)
Bottom Line: We ought not to be so focussed, so much, upon the differences that we have with one another! Though they may be many, they’re just not that important in the overall scheme of what we are actually called to do!
There is so much more at stake than our petty debating, pushing and promoting our own different misgivings, misunderstandings, opinions, perspectives, views and beliefs, concerning how we interpret The Scriptures.
Okay, I know that when I say what I am going to say, it can and will be quickly interpreted as being my own opinion, perspective and view. But, be that as it may, I would hope that we all could come to an agreement upon two simple statements: 1) That Jesus Christ is LORD, for there is no other LORD GOD ALMIGHTY; therefore, there is no other Name, by which one can be saved! And 2) That anyone and everyone that calls upon The Name of The LORD shall be saved!
Now I know that, perhaps, for many, it may be just too simplistic of a premise to accept. But, at least prayerfully consider it, in light of the simple Good News—The Gospel, that is revealed in just one simple verse of Papa God’s Holy Writ, in The Gospel of John, 3:16! G-O-S-P-E-L…God’s Only Son Provides Eternal Life!
Once we truly come together in the same Spirit, one mind, united in thought and purpose, we will, without any doubt or division, accomplish our divine mission and call, The Great Commission! Let’s do it! Blessings…
