This week we approached a very serious topic in the Modern church: unity. It is my hope that some insight was shared as to how to discern the voice of God from a critical spirit. Unity is part of the nature of God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost all work together in harmony, unity.
We ought to be ready to build up, edify just as much as rebuke. If you look at the scripture, it says edify, exhort and rebuke-so a rebuke is only one third of the task. We must lay down our opinions and individual tastes as Christ laid down His life for the brethren. Anything less is vanity, as whatever works are done without God will only melt away.
