1 Peter 3:8

"Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble."NIV

"Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous."KJV

There is a reason that the Word tells us many times to be of one mind, unified, and in one accord. The Lord our God is One: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, perfect unity, oneness. Our Lord expects His bride, the Church, to be in perfect unity as well. Unfortunately, believers have made divisions among themselves over less important issues than the ones that matter. The true Church believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, who came to earth to show us how to live, was crucified, and arose from the grave, now sitting with the Father in Heaven. He did this to make the final sacrifice for every sin of every human. Faith in this and repentance of a life of sin is what makes one a part of the Church. If all believers will unite on this Truth and leave behind differences of practice and interpretation of the Word, the gates of Hell will not prevail and the Church would be destroying the works of the devil that go on all around us.

Heavenly Father, as believers in You, we have our beliefs of what is right. We recognize that this has caused divisions in Your body, the Church. Open our hearts, our eyes, that we might clearly let the Holy Spirit direct us into unity with all believers; that we will be one with You. In Jesus Christ's name we pray, Amen.
