standing together with one spirit and one purpose, fighting together for the faith, which is the Good News.
We’re all familiar with Paul’s calls for unity throughout his letters. Why does he stress this so much? Is it just because people were falling out or is it because of the impact a lack of unity has on the work of the kingdom?
There will always be differences, how sad it would be if we were all the same, but allowing those differences to cause divisions is not the way of the gospel. We must stand firm and stand together as we contend for the gospel as Paul puts it. Pray that our differences would not hinder the proclamation of God’s good news.
