Divisions Not Allowed In God’s House

 

 

“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.” (Corinthians 1:10)

 

 

 

 

If there will be unity in a family, church or a group of people, the role of the leader cannot be over emphasized. A leader should be the unifying force over those he or she leads. In this regard, the leader should ensure his subordinates’ opposing or dissenting views are harmonized in a way as to carry all of them along their common objective for being together in the first place. Unfortunately, some leaders deliberately encourage divisions, by sowing seeds of discord and turning one subordinate against the other. They call it divide and rule ‘strategy’. That is satanic! Some leaders encourage or provide the platform for subordinates to create camps. Not Jesus! As long as Jesus was physically present, He was the rallying point of unity for all His disciples. One day, two brother – James and John brought their mother to lobby Jesus, so that they would secure the highest positions in Heaven, right beside the Lord Himself (Matthew 20:20-24). When the other disciples heard of it, they were very angry! That move could have broken the twelve into separate camps. But the Lord handled it with wisdom and they remained united without killing the desire of the Zebedees to attain heavenly greatness.

It is very challenging to unite people with diverse backgrounds, goals, interest and understanding. However, it is very easy to cause division. One hallmark of a true leader is that he or she is not easily carried away by comments or selfish actions of the team he or she is leading, as the group goal is uppermost in his or her heart. Another person who could not stand God’s church being broken into camps was Paul. In His days, converts began to break into at least four different camps right in the church in Corinth but with wisdom, Paul resolved this and unified Christ’s church. Are you instrumental to the division of God’s church? You are calling for God’s judgement. Repent and restitute. Go and meet the people you sowed those seeds of discord into and compel them to reverse their rebellious acts. This will be good evidence of your repentance.

A body that is dismembered cannot operate as whole. A part of the body can never be whole. Division limits us. Strive for peace and unity.

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

    Hi Bummyla, once again a very good message thank you. God has set down for all of us His guidelines in the Church this is so the Body of Christ can be healthy and so we can mature but disobedience is causing division and error but as you said God is a God of Unity and if we have the mind of Christ we will be in agreement, The Holy Spirit does not say one thing to one person and something differant to another when it contradicts.

    A Woman’s role as a Helpmate to a Man is a high calling as is the Man’s role of Leadership sadly to-day Woman are not content to rejoice in their God given role and Men are allowing this, they do not value the Woman’s role as an important one. Woman can have positions of Leadership in the Church but not ones that have Authority over Men or where they are called to teach Men in Authority, yes they can indeed share God’s Truth and even correct error, we are all called to do this so the body will be strong and without fault but Woman are to submit to Men in their Leadership role and uphold it as Deborah and other Woman did in the early Church .

    As you said Bummyla some cause dissension and when a Man or Woman are disobedient to God this will happen but it is those who do not agree with and obey God’s Truth that cause problems not those who are faithful to stand up for His guidelines, yes they may be argued against or ignored and rejected by many but it is those who are in error who God will hold accountable. Itching ears will only accept what fits in with their own agenda which is mostly not Gods and yes what they propergate will be popular because it appeals to the wordly flesh… sad but True.
