When Christians argue with each other and tear each other down, they are breaking a strong cord of unity. They are destroying the power of unity. God did not make us all just alike. But He says, when two come together they shall withstand the enemy, but when a threefold cord is formed it is not easily broken.
You see, we may not all agree on doctrine, but if we have the one goal, that is to win lost souls for the Lord Jesus Christ and His kingdom, then we need to form a cord that can not be broken. We need to come together in unity to win souls out in the communitys, and leave doctrine at home.
God made men and women different, and together they make a whole. Same with husbands and wives with their differences set aside, they come together and make a whole, a strong force to be reckoned with. The same is true with Christians, when we all come together in unity, we are a strong force to be reckoned with. How many lost souls do you imagine would be saved in a service where all Christians come together for that purpose, of winning souls and worshiping the Lord, and not just trying to be religous. The enemy would not have a chance to steal the lost if they are surrounded by a cord of three or more all on the same page as to what the Lord Jesus really wants us to do.
We are to share the gospel, the good news, we are to reach out to the lost, and offer them the gift of salvation, we are to love them into the kingdom of God. Simply put, we are to share Jesus and His wonderful gift with them. AMEN!
Don't let the devil drive a wedge between you and another Christian friend, just because you have different doctrines, no stand together and let people see the strong mighty force of God at work, instead of Christians arguing in strife over doctrine. Stand and be a force for Jesus, be a stronghold that cannot be broken. Stand in the power of unity.
Eccle. 4 v 9-12....Two are better than one. because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fail, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls. For he has no one to help him up. Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm; but how can one be warm alone? Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him, and a threefold cord is not quickly broken......
We as Christians should be uplifting one another, not tearing down each other. We must walk out the word of God in our lives daily, so the lost will know which way to go, and know where to find the truth in Jesus and not be confused by hearing Christians argue over doctrine.
STAY IN THE WORD!
