“A Community of Unity"

“Holy Father, keep them in your name, which you have given me, that they may be one, even as we are one.”
(John 17:11b) esv.

The Old Testament scriptures teach from Gen. 2 to Deut. 6:4 to John 17 to Eph. 4:4-6 and through the bible that God, Jesus, Holy Spirit are One......this is taught as “essential truth”.  God gave this as an example for us to live everyday with every believer.  Although we may disagree on what version of the bible is better, or what type of worship is conducted in church on sunday morning.  Those are not “essential truth” to follow God. They do not promote Unity.

“That they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me”
John 17:20) esv

This is how we will succeed in the B.A.T.T.L.E.O.F.S.O.U.L.S. by binding together in agreeing on the “essentials”

(1) Jesus died for our sins

(2) no other way to be saved except by accepting Jesus in your heart

(3) the Trinity-God, Jesus, Holy Spirit. 

Be careful of the little things (church life, theology, etc)while it can be healthy and cause spiritual growth, if not careful--disagreements can cause division and dissension, which can dissolve unity just as quickly as it was established.  Learn to focus on saving souls & the “essentials”--PLEASE read the GOSPELS--see how Jesus promoted unity--learn from that--teach that--live that,  and unity will rescue the lost off the battlefield, and satan will be defeated...over...and over...and over again.

I wish all you the best on the battlefield this week.
For the Saints and for the Lamb.
