Thought Of The Day:

Let’s spend time in the word today looking at fellowship/unity in The Body of Christ.

By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another. Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma. speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, and attaining to all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the knowledge of the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Christ, Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them. that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. God Is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ. We took sweet counsel together, And walked to the house of God in the throng. Now behold, two of them were traveling that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was seven miles from Jerusalem. And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another and so much the more as you see the Day approaching. Be hospitable to one another without grumbling.

We are working together with different personalities, opinions and ideas, we need to learn to work together and become stronger, as a unit, to be effective in The Body

If we are to please God, we need to allow The Holy Spirit to set us apart. We need to pursue a sinless life. We are to seek Righteousness. How do we do it? Through prayer, study, fellowship, being willing to be corrected/accountability, discipleship, and service.  
It starts with Our Relationship with Jesus. If you don’t have a Relationship with Him or you need to rekindle that Relationship, do it now. Call out to Him and seek his Love and Forgiveness. It really is as hard or easy as you make it. We should look to Him daily to seek a relationship with Him. I want to encourage you to seek Him today, if you haven’t already.
If you need help, have questions or need direction in this regard, please, feel free to let me know. Maybe today you are struggling with something. Maybe you may have found yourself not as close to The Lord as you thought. We would like to help you in this through prayer and guidance.
