“Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.”I Corinthians 1:10 NKJV
The denominations and divisions we see today in the body of Christ is not the will of God. It is the result of man’s wisdom and his traditions. All of us who follow Jesus Christ are simply that. We are not defined by our doctrinal differences or our denominations. We are defined by who Jesus is and what He has done.
If our focus is solely on Christ and glorifying His name we will not have divisions. But too many times we allow pride to get in the way and cause strife and discord. We are called to be a people of God’s love and this is only possible as we abide.
Let us simply draw near and be obedient. Let us set aside man made traditions and wisdom. This is the very thing that blinded the religious leaders of Jesus day. Let us simply desire and seek to lift up the name of Jesus.
