The Lord God Jesus Christ, Wants True, Biblical Unity In His Church Body:

Awesome Holy Spirit Lead And, Teach Us, In Jesus Name:


The Bible mandates the importance of “ Christ Unity In Love” and “Biblical Oneness In Grace.” Unity with other spiritual members is “good” and “pleasant” ( Psalm 133:1 ). Unity is essential because the Church is the “body of Christ” ( 1 Corinthians 12:27 ), and a body cannot be in disunity or disharmony with itself. If disunity occurs, it essentially ceases to be a body and becomes a disjointed group of individuals. Jesus Christ’s plan for His Church is brothers and, sisters in Christ of all nations unified in the faith under Jesus Christ.


The secret to unity begins with how we view ourselves within the body and how we view our spiritual nation's family. The key verse that addresses this is ( Philippians 2:3:) “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.” Disunity in a Church is most often caused when we act selfishly and consider ourselves better than other believers who do not look like us or have what we have. Apostle Paul goes on to explain further in the following verse: “Each of you should look not only to your own interests but also to the interests of others.” Sadly, Churches that experience disunity and are in conflict and turmoil are generally filled with preachers, and their members looking to their own needs, their own desires, and their own ambitions. Such behavior is characteristic of unbelievers, not those with the mind of Christ. Worldliness, not godliness, is the hallmark of the disunified Church, as Apostle Paul reminded the Corinthians: “For you are yet carnal. For in that there is among you envying and strife and divisions, are you not carnal, and do you not walk according to men?” ( 1 Corinthians 3:3 ).


But Elder Paul tells us that we are to consider others’ needs before our own. In all modesty, humility, and lowliness of mind, we are to “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love” ( Ephesians 4:2 ). A Church filled with such believers cannot help but have peace, unity, and harmony. The truly humble believer sees his own faults in light of the perfections of Christ; he does not seek to see the faults of others, but when he does, he speaks the truth in love and desires their sanctification so they will be built up in the image of Christ. He sees his own heart and the corruption that lies hidden there, along with impure motives and evil ambitions. But he does not seek to notice the errors, defects, and follies of other saints. He sees the depravity of his own heart and hopes charitably in the goodness of others and believes their hearts are purer than his.


Most importantly, as Christ Believers, we are to see one another in the light of the cross. Fellow Christ-followers are those for whom Christ died a horrible and painful death so that He might exchange His righteous perfection for their sin ( 2 Corinthians 5:21). How can we not extend to them the love, compassion, and grace of our heavenly Father? How can we demean, criticize, and defame those covered with the precious blood of Christ? Were we not slaves to sin when He called us, hopelessly lost, dead in our own transgressions and sins ( Ephesians 2:1 )? But we are now family of Christ, family to righteousness, and as a family of the Savior, the task before us is not to quarrel and demand our needs be met but to reflect His grace and love to those who are also His by His mercy. A family Church full of such believers enjoying their “common salvation” will be a true, biblical family Church unified in, and earnestly contending for, the “faith once delivered to the Saints” ( Jude 1:3 ).
