UNITY OF FAITH

 
🔊Audio Version☞  http://bit.ly/2d9kZiu
 
Ephesians 4:13 [AMP]
Until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the knowledge of the Son of God, that at really mature manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ's own perfection), the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him.

Lara and Bidemi were friends, but their understanding of the faith was very different. And because of this, they would argue. Lara believed that preachers should not call out sins and insist that people leave them, that Christianity is about faith and not works, that preachers who called out sins were not preaching the real gospel. On the other hand, Bidemi believed that faith without works is dead. That if a person claims to be saved, it should show in his lifestyle. That if his salvation doesn’t show in his lifestyle, it only proves that he has not been truly saved. Therefore preachers should call out sins and let people understand what is expected. Because of these divergent views and many more like it, Bedemi and Lara could never achieve unity of the faith.

We have created niches and segments in the body of Christ because of varying understanding of the faith. One sign of spiritual infancy is narrow mindedness and not having the ability to accept that someone who does not see the faith the way you see it is also serving and worshiping God, even though he believes and professes Christ as Lord and savior.

Go into today knowing that as we all grow into the fullness of Christ, we will become more united, open hearted and closed mouthed (un-judgmental). Ask the Lord to help you grow into the fullness of Christ. Not yet saved? Click ☞ http://bit.ly/1iTOmol
