TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I designed you for unity with Me. You are able to love others more fully when you’re connected with My Holy Spirit in you. Seek Me today and I will not only be found by you, I will unite you with others searching for Me.
NOW, THAT’S TRIBE!
Tribe is God’s idea. Tribe is about the bigger picture of family.
In the family, we are all different. We’re all a little bit weird, but we all have the same Father. God loves diversity within the tribe, but He hates division within it.
In these last days, we need a huge value for unity and solidarity among Jesus-loving people. Whether you go to church on Saturday or Sunday, whether you dress up or don’t, have tattoos or don’t have tattoos – whatever it is you want to hang your hat on – if Christians are divided amongst ourselves, America will fall.
Unity makes us a conduit for God’s power. Division makes us impotent. If we’re going to expect to meet opposition when advancing in God’s Kingdom, and I expect that, we need to pray for unity now more than ever.
The Bible even says we need to practice unity.
“May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus.” – Romans 15:5
There is an actual Spirit of Unity guys, and let us not grieve the Spirit of Unity. Like posting trash on Facebook about other Christians, or putting other churches down, the word says that is not OK with Jesus.
“Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them.” – Romans 16:17
I call this the left foot of fellowship, and you don’t want to get this from me or anyone else. You and I need to be united as citizens of heaven living on earth. We need to love the church down the street and pray for its success in bringing the lost to Jesus. Now, that’s tribe.
