Jesus spoke these words in John 17:21
“That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.”
These words to the disciples were some of Jesus very last words He spoke before He went to the cross.
We Reach Our Hands in Fellowship To EVERY Bloodwashed One!
Do I? Do we? It is more than a song.
It should be our daily experience.
In Rev 22:17, it says, the Evening Light Saints will be saying “Come”
“And the Spirit and the Bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst, Come. And Whosoever will, let him take the Water of LIFE freely!”
Praise the Lord! What a wonderful message!
The Church, or Bride of Christ is saying the exact same thing that the Spirit of God is saying!
This is the Final Message God has for His church, as well as to the world.
Come to JESUS! Come and drink the Water of LIFE Freely!
If we, as saints are to lovingly preach the message of Gods Love, saying to the unsaved, “COME”, HOW MUCH MORE should we be Practicing it to one another as saints
Jesus said in John 15, THIS is my commandment, That ye love one another as I have loved you.
Jesus was telling us how to Love one another as saints.
I sometimes wonder why would Jesus have to command us to love the saints?
The saints are the easiest people on the earth to love, right?
There must be a reason Jesus felt the need to Command his disciples to Love one another.
We have an adversary. There is Nobody who hates the Church more than Satan, and he will never stop to try to divide Gods people.
Over the years I have seen so many divisions among the so called Children of God, it must pain Gods heart.
Most of the times the division is centered around some man made tradition, and has nothing at all to do with Bible Doctrines.
Or, One minister feels the need to attack another minister who does not happen to understand and see the scripture exactly how he sees it.
Many take on an arrogant spirit of, “Either see it our way, or take the Highway.”
And they heartlessly divide the body of Christ! They are guilty of division!
THAT spirit is NOT the spirit of Gods church!
Gods church has the spirit that always is saying Come.
Proverbs 6.19 says, God hates “he that soweth discord among brethren.”
Jesus tells us of what he saw in the future church in Matthew 24.49 referring to evil servants,
“And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken.”
When we cause division over petty things, we are smiting the body of Christ, we are smiting Gods children!
God hates this!
And we are in trouble if we are guilty of this!!
Never forget, it is GODS church, not yours, it is GODS people, not yours!
Verse 51 pronounces the terrible judgment for such ones!
“And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth!”
Weeping and gnashing of teeth? That can NEVER be said of Gods Holy and Righteous people!It can happen, and has happened, and will probably keep happening.
Jude, verse 5 says, “I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.”
Lord, help us to keep believing in You, abiding in Christ, Abiding in the Vine.
