How to Make "They" Become "Us."

I don't know about you, but I am constantly thinking about how to find unity with people in the denominational world. I have no desire to leave the truth to get where they are, but I also recognize that their mindset causes them to think they are of the truth as they stand. Here are some ways in which I believe unity can be accomplished:

1. Say the same thing (1 Cor. 1:10).

2. Have the same care for each other (1 Cor. 12:25).

3. Share the same goal (Phil. 3;14-15).

4. Practice the same things (Phil. 3:16).

5. Hope the same (Eph. 4:4).

6. Receive the same spiritual food and drink (1 Cor. 10:4).

7. Love the same (Phil. 2:2).

Without the Biblical standard there is no hope for unity. Without our willingness to humble ourselves and obey the word there can be no "us."

"There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all." ~ Ephesians 4:4-6
