This is what the Lord desires from His believers.
Please read the following verses.
A song of ascents. Of David.
1 How good and pleasant it is
when brothers live together in unity!
2 It is like precious oil poured on the head,
running down on the beard,
running down on Aaron’s beard,
down upon the collar of his robes.
3 It is as if the dew of Hermon
were falling on Mount Zion.
For there the Lord bestows his blessing,
Ah, unity, but at what cost?
I love being around the Lord’s people. However, are we supposed to be unequally yoked with people who say they are Christian but live against the teachings of the Lord and His Word?
I believe the word says we should not.
11 But now I am writing you that you must not associate with anyone who calls himself a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a slanderer, a drunkard or a swindler. With such a man do not even eat.
Now, this is not saying we should avoid unbelievers.
However, if someone says, they are a Christian and does not live a Christian life, then what?
We should certainly pray for and go to those people if we can, and try to show them the error of their ways.
Many times, this does not go well.
Right now, in our denomination, we are dealing with this very thing. We have churches who are not willing to follow the Word of God.
It seems these days, I find more in common with people from other streams of faith then I do within our denomination.
We are trying to stay together in unity, I am not sure we can.
Time will tell and the Lord God already knows.
May we as believers build on that rock, Jesus Christ.
As we are indwelt by the Spirit, may we be in unity with other indwelt Spirit believers.
