Topic: The Power of Unity in Christ
Key Verse: And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose. – Romans 8:28
Message: It’s hard to believe how many denominations and independent churches there are today, yet there’s only one Bible, one message. Joyce Meyer 17 February 2018
But over the years, because of pride and narrow-mindedness, people have felt the need to develop a myriad of churches and church groups—even different versions of the Bible—to support different interpretations of what they believe the Bible says.
Joyce Meyer 17 February 2018 Daily Devotional – The Power of Unity in Christ
I’ve come to realize that none of us are 100 percent correct. Most of the things we fight over are petty. In Matthew 23:24, Jesus told the Pharisees that they strained out a gnat but swallowed a camel. They had gotten so picky about the little things that it prevented them from dealing with the truly important things. Joyce Meyer 17 February 2018.
If we allow prejudice, hatred and division to have a place in our lives, we’ll be powerless to stop them. Only agreement and unity in the love of Christ will bring the power to defeat prejudice. And the love of God is always greater than critical, divisive attitudes toward others. Joyce Meyer 17 February 2018 Daily Devotional.
Prayer Starter: Holy Spirit, expose any sin in my heart that causes division, prejudice or hatred of any kind to affect my life. I want to walk in Your love and have unity with my brothers and sisters in Christ. Amen!
