Unity of the Spirit! - Thursday, May 17th, 2007

“Therefore I, the prisoner of the Lord, implore you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love, being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”
Ephesians 4:1-3

Today I have a simple prayer for the body of Christ in Dallas. Let us preserve the UNITY OF THE SPIRIT. Even amidst disagreements and differences, the church must stick together. Too many times we split because of one issue. But I am here to say, “We need to work things out.” We mustn’t close up shop and call it quits. Regardless of the outcome, we must handle all situations with humility and gentleness. Patience must be exemplified. Tolerance through love must be evident. We need to “walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which (we) have been called.”

The Apostle Paul understood the ongoing problems within the body of Christ. And he too wanted unity. But not just unity of the mind, but unity of the Spirit. Therefore, he wrote to the church of Ephesus, “Therefore I, the prisoner of the Lord, implore you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love, being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”

The bottom line is…I just want others to begin the process of reconciliation with the body of Christ. Originally, my desire was for those outside of the tent, but apparently the Lord is teaching me that we must understand reconciliation and UNITY OF THE SPIRIT first and foremost with those INSIDE THE TENT. Please pray for me today. My hands are raised and my knees are on the ground. Lord, please reveal Yourself. Please, show me Your will. Please, show me Your timing.
