Spiritual Unanimity

The Holy Spirit knew what He was doing when He moved the apostle Peter to write to the early Christian Church about the reality of being “of one mind” in their fellowship. Peter was not asking all the brothers and sisters to settle for some kind of regulated uniformity. He was recommending a spiritual unanimity—which means that the Spirit of God making Christ real within our beings will also give us a unity in certain qualities and disposition. Peter leaves little doubt about the fruits of genuine Christian unanimity within: “Be alike in compassion. Be alike in loving. Be alike in pity. Be alike in courtesy. Be alike in forgiving!” Then he sums it all up: “Finally, be ye all of one mind!” God’s love shed abroad in our heart compassion and love, which can only be found in Jesus Christ. These are the only elements of true unity among men and women today!

Verse

Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren. 1 Peter 3:8

Thought

Be alike in compassion. Be alike in loving. Be alike in pity. Be alike in courtesy. Be alike in forgiving. Finally, be ye all of one mind!

Prayer

Lord, make me a unifying factor in the circles of Christian fellowship that I am a part of. Help us all to realize what being of one mind is really about.

“What I believe about God is the most important thing about me.”
