If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, Fulfill ye my joy, that ye be like minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. (Philippians 2:1,2).
There is nothing better than a group of people standing together as one for a just cause as Christians do in the body of Christ. “Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you: but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment”.(1 Corinthians 1:10).
It is impossible to be in the world and in the body of Christ at the same time of those who say they are Christian, yet many claim able to. Jesus often said he was not of the world nor are his people wherefore if we be in Christ we are free from the ordinances of the world. (Colossians 2:19-23).
Strife among any people is of no profit to the edifying of the body of Christ. To be like minded strengthens the Christian unit which honors God! “Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be like minded one toward another according to Christ Jesus: That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God”.(Romans 15:5-7).
We are to be knit together in love and when we abide by the truth found in the knowledge of God nothing can separate us from that love that we have come to know in the body of our Saviour………
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! (Psalm 133:1).
