It is time that the Body of Christ to come into divine alignment in the unity of the Spirit and stop bickering and arguing amongst itself, and making excuses for it’s bad behavior toward each other.
I encourage everyone of you to slowly read the following scriptures and allow them to sink deep within your hearts that we may all grow up in him to be the fruitful planting of the LORD that we are all were called to be.
It is by our fruits that we shall be known. “Wherefore by their fruits shall ye know them,” Matthew 7:16.
“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; as the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore,” Psalms 133:1-3.
“Therefore, the prisoner of the LORD, beseech you that ye WALK WORTHY OF THE VOCATION WHEREWITH YE WERE CALLED, with all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; endeavouring to keep the UNITY OF THE SPIRIT IN THE BOND OF PEACE. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling,” Ephesians 4:1-3.
“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin,” 1 John 1:7.
“That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me,” John 17:21-23.
“And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you,” Ephesians 4:32.
“Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another,” Romans 12:10.
“Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful,” Colossians 3:12-15.
“Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing,” 1 Peter 3:8-9.
“Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits,” Romans 12:16.
“If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus,” Philippians 2:1-5.
