Unity of the Faith

God is ONE and there is unity in the Body of Christ, because every member of the Body of Christ is of the same spirit and they are led by the same Spirit. They are directed by the Head, Jesus Christ and they do His will. Why do we not see this unity in the world today? It is because those who call themselves believers and Christians do not have the Holy Spirit. They are not led by the Holy Spirit. They do not belong to Jesus. They belong to churches, ministries and organizations, and they are all running the own direction. They say that they are part of the Body of Christ but they are only members of a little group that has nothing to do with Jesus Christ.

If we are in Christ, we will be of the same Spirit, and we will do as Jesus Christ directs us. There are some that are of that same Spirit that are in unity. They are in unity with Jesus Christ. They are in Christ. They are scattered all over the world. They are of different countries and different cultures, but they are of the same Spirit, the Spirit of Christ, because they follow Jesus Christ. Very few of these people ever come together and meet together but they follow Jesus Christ. They are in Christ.

It is to no avail if we are part of a group of people that have the same teachings and doctrines but we are not of the body of Christ, we are not of Christ. If we are not led by the Spirit of Christ we cannot do the will of Christ. We look back into history and we see what happened with the first believers, how they followed Jesus, and then we look back on our own history and we see how churches have sprung up and how they have diverted the gospel of Jesus Christ for their own benefit, they have built organizations around their own doctrines and teachings. They call themselves the body of Christ but they have nothing to do with Christ.

Unless we are in close relationship with Jesus and follow Him every day, listen to His Holy Spirit, we cannot be of the same spirit we cannot be in unity with Jesus Christ. We might be in unity with some church group, but church groups are divided against each other and they are divided against the kingdom of God.

True unity is when we are in Christ and when each member is doing the will of Christ, that to which the Holy Spirit is guiding him. You will not enjoy the approval of church people and other Christians but you will have the approval of Jesus Christ if you are in Him. We need to be in Christ to be pleasing to Him. God is doing a new thing. We cannot go back into history delve into history and try to do what we think the will of God was. We need to follow Jesus Christ every day, listen to Him and do His will, do what He guides us into doing, and only then will we be ONE in Christ or one in the faith and able to do the will of God.

Are we being led by the Spirit of God or are we trying to emulate other people or doctrines or ideas, because then we are not busy with the kingdom of God. We need to be led by the Spirit of God every day, be tuned into the Holy Spirit but firstly we’ve got to start right start, with Jesus, obey His commands, repent and be baptized and then He will fill you with His Holy Spirit if you seek Him, and only then can you follow Him and be led by the Holy Spirit. Only then can we be one with Christ and one in faith. There’s only one God. there’s only one Body. Are we part of that body. Do we listen to the Head and follow Him? Are we doing the will of God? are we part of the kingdom of God?

May Jesus bless you.
