We Are One?

The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; John 17:22

The prayer that Jesus Christ had spoke over all of us, is that we are united as One through God. However lets be honest, many Christians are completely divided even though we all worship the same Lord. We need to stop the insanity! I recently watched a debate where 4 Christian scholars debated each other over the doctrine of Calvinism. The one Calvinist got up to the microphone and stated his debate partners were not truly brothers because they didn’t believe in Calvinism. Meaning his fellow Christians were not saved because they had different doctrinal beliefs

We need to stop the insanity! As Christians we need to keep Jesus as our High Priest and not man. I don’t care what John Calvin said, or Martin Luther said, or what John Wesley said, all I care is what Jesus Christ said. And Jesus said We as Christians need to be 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. John 17:23

Notice how Jesus is displaying his Triunity with God. We maybe perfected with our Unity in Christ! The problem with us is we try to rely on  ourselves to much. We try to interpret scripture as we see it, and follow  people we believe are divinely inspired. We need to die to ourselves and live for Christ!

Stop the division among brothers and sisters! As Jesus commanded us , Unite through Christ Amen!

    Followers of Jesus have to agree on the common ground of the resurrection of Jesus. From that, “In Essentials, unity. In non-essentials, liberty. In all things, love” comes from Augustine (354-430 AD), Where do we start? I am ready to go to Act 2:42 and work on the “Law of Liberty” and the 50+ commands of Jesus to “Love one another” When did the “Church” divide? How many divisions, separations, divorces does God like? What are the essentials, no compromise, “Jesus said it I believe it”? Can I marry who or what I want? Can I be saved by refusing to do any more than believing and have membership in a church that I attend every so often? What if I tithe a lot will that help? No! Jesus requires action caused by belief responding in loving obedience. IMHO, When we learn to love as Jesus does we will be able to raise the dead! My love all that I can muster in my old heart would not melt a snowflake. His love for us will raise the dead! https://saltlightministry.com/
