(KJV.) I CORINTHIANS 3:3-5
(3) For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal and walk as men?
(4) For while one saith, I am of Paul and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal?
(5) Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?
BE IN ONE ACCORD!
Brethren, as members of the body of Christ, our common goal is to preach the gospel, enlighten the minds of souls to come out of darkness into the marvelous lights of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, have salvation, free grace, hope, and eternal lives: well said and done!
In this Era, there are divisions within the body of Christ; instead of the members to work together as a team, with one accord, one purpose, everyone have gone their different ways; therefore, there are enviousness, strives, competitions and divisions among brethren, we have lost focus on the intended purposes of the establishment of Christ; subsequently, the enemy has infiltrated the churches; Jesus said, "And if a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand." cf. Mark 3:24-25; therefore, let us lay aside our differences, refrain from attacking one another about doctrine; what Jesus said, versus what Paul said, and who is saying what?; rather, come together as a body, as brothers and sisters with a common goal, to preach the word, be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering, doctrine. cf. 2 Timothy 4:2; for we are all appointed by Jesus Christ for good works, and Jesus already laid the groundwork to build upon, therefore, let us focus on our callings, work the good works, regardless of persecutions, reproaches, sufferings, be patient, persevere, never give up, throw in the towels, walk away; for the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. cf. Romans 8:18.
Dearly beloved, the whole earth is in the presence of our Father, he does not see only one part of the earth, but see its entirety, therefore, he appoints his ministers from all the four corners of the world, it does not matter to him who to call, if any souls heart is right before him, he will select and use that soul for his glory; therefore, let us accept believers from all walks of life, not within our circles alone, but extend love to other believers outside our vicinities, states, nations as well, work as a team, be on the one page, cast away divisions, resist the evil works of the enemy, temptations to fall into sins, and he will flee away; he flees away only for a season, let us be careful, he is our common enemy to resist not our fellow brothers and sisters within the body of Christ: love and embrace one another, for this is the will of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen and Amen!
QUOTES OF THE DAY:
(KJV.) I Corinthians 3:10-11 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise master-builder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
