WAKE UP AMERICA

Word}Thought of Today “WHY”The Lack Of Unity Among The Churches???
“Make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose,” (Phil. 2:2).
One of the signs of apostasy (falling from the truth) in the Christian Church is the bickering and disunity among Christians.
Jesus said that the world would know that we were His disciples by the love that we have for one another (John 13:35).In Col. 3:14,it says that love is the perfect bond of unity.The New Testament speaks about us being unified in Christ (Eph. 4:5).In response to Christians who follow after individuals rather than Jesus, Paul says that Christ is not divided (1 Cor. 1:12-13).Though Christ is not divided, His body of believers is. Divisions in the Christian church can be a healthy and necessary thing: “For there must also be factions among you, in order that those who are approved may have become evident among you,”(1 Cor. 11:19).But too much of a good thing isn’t good.
It is alright to have differences of opinion on the non-essential matters like worship styles or days, pre-trib rapture, post-trib rapture, Arminianism, Calvinism,etc. Whether you believe one or the other,it does not affect salvation.Yet far too many Christians use these non-essential differences as justification for division and sometimes even insight anger.When this occurs, the love of God in our hearts is sacrificed to our pride.Instead of saying to one another,”I am right and you are wrong,” we should be saying something like, “It is certainly possible that you are correct. Now,let’s work together to glorify God and expand His kingdom.” Perhaps this is too simplistic, but at least it displays an attitude of humility that helps to bring unity. It is the devil that wants us to fall into the self-abuse of division and bickering.
*Prayer Guide* Please WAKE UP AMERICA .
*Pray for an awakening of the churches to UNITE and stand in the gap for our city,nation and leaders(Ezekiel 22:30).
