Oneness In The Body Of Christ (1)
John 17:23; Romans 5:5

John 17:23 "I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me." In today’s opening Scripture, the Lord Jesus was praying for us before He entered into the great substitution, where He took our place as our substitute. He wanted the Body of Christ to be united as one body without the strings of denomination separating us. What denominationalism has done is to separate the Body of Christ so that we see other believers as ‘other people’ rather than a part of us. Some say things like "those ones are too liberal for our conservative minds."" Others say "don’t mind those conservative people"". What Jesus did however was to pray John17:23 – the prayer for oneness. It is in that oneness and in that love that the world will see us as Christians indeed. He said in John 13:35 "by this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another"". Love is the unification of the Body of Christ. As God’s children, we have to learn to be patient with one another in love. We need to endeavour to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. We ought to speak the truth to one another in love. If you are not patient and loving in teaching the truth, they won’t get it. Instead, let the Love of God work through you. Teach others in love and with patience the knowledge that God has given you, that we all might come into the measure of the stature of Christ, as we pray for one another consistently. This is how to walk in the unity or oneness of the Body of Christ.

Other Scriptures for Meditation: 1 Corinthians 13:1-8; Ephesians 4:1-6

My Solid Front (Confession)
I declare in the Name of Jesus Christ, that the unity of the Body of Christ is paramount to me. I walk in love towards other Christians. I am patient and I teach others in love. People come to know Christ as they see me walk in love towards the Brethren. Amen.
