Friends of Faith

“…standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving

As we look to the New Year let us renew our commitment to the authority of God’s word and the unity of the Spirit that it brings. The early church was powerful and one reason was the unity that held the Christians together. However, unity doesn’t always come easy. We are told in scripture to “preserve” or “strive” for unity and peace.

As I write this New Year greeting we are blessed as a congregation with unity and peace but let us guard it carefully as Satan (just as he did in the early church) will always see what he can do to disturb that peace and unity. That is why the apostles continually reminded the early Christians to be unified. That unity was to be based on the word of God and their common faith. We are not told to be unified with false teachings or unbelievers but there are many verses that call on us to be unified in our faith.

“Be of the same mind one toward another” Rom.12:16 “…be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus; that you may with one mind and one mouth glorify God.” Rom.15:5-6 “Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous” 1Peter 3:8

And in Ephesians 4:12-13 we are told to build up the body of Christ “until we all attain to the unity of the faith”. This coming year let us work hard at being encouragers!

God bless you this coming year and let us be thankful for how He has blessed us this past year.
