The importance of unity II

Peace unto you, dear God’s children!I thank God for this day and believe that this day will be filled with the blessings from the Lord. Today I’d like to continue on the topic I talked about yesterday – the importance of unity. We saw that when you have a strong team every house will be built and every project will be completed. That kind of team will always achieve victory. In the Bible we see that Jesus also talked about the importance of unity.
“Now when the Pharisees heard it they said, “This fellow does not cast out demons except by Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons.” But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.” (Mathew, 12:24-25).
According to this Scripture Jesus declares that division brings destruction and defeat. Division in the Body of Christ is one of the things today that cause the Church to be ineffective. Jesus says that when a household is divided in itself it won’t stand. For this very reason Satan actively fights unity in all places, especially the Church and families. For him this is the quickest way to stop the ministry of the Church and to destroy families. Today God wants to address every person that is reading this word: each person that loves Jesus Christ must do everything in his power to avoid being a source of division in His Body. We must not become a source of strife, division and separation in the Church. Besides, we have to be active against anybody who is spreading division in the Body of Christ, even avoid fellowshipping with them. It says so in Romans (16:17-18):
“Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them. For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple”.
Apostle Paul says that the people, who bring division, becoming a stumbling block in the Body of Christ, serve their belly, not Jesus Christ, and it means they are simply looking out for their own benefit instead of loving the Lord. This kind of person does not care about the promotion of the work of God. God asks us not to be a source of division and to do everything that depends on us to confront the people who create division. We must tear down these types of obstacles in the Body of Christ so that the Church could fulfil its destination in the earth. May God give you wisdom so that you could be a source of edification to the Body of Christ!May God bless you! Until tomorrow! Pastor Rufus Ajiboye
