Unity or division?
For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body–whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free–and have all been made to drink into one Spirit. 1 Corinthians 12:13
Division came with the Fall.
We have had schisms and factions and allegiances ever since.
At times, we even marginalize and demonize other believers.
As long as we are led by our own preferences, insights and opinions it will continue.
But if we are led by the Spirit
Things are radically different.
Division becomes unity.
Factions become fellowship.
What was either/or becomes both/and.
Make no mistake, this change is miraculous.
But as soon as our surrender and submission overpowers our selfish stubbornness,
Oneness will be wondrously ordinary.
