Fight to Be One
Today's sermon is: "Fight to be one." I would like us to begin with a word of prayer. Let us prepare our hearts then to receive His truths about life.
"Father, open our hearts, minds, and souls to receive the words spoken to us through Your Son, Jesus. We want; no we need to hear from You. Open our ears to hear what it is that You want to say to Your bride, Your church. Move in power to change our ways to Your higher and more perfect ways. Bring truth to the surface and silence the plots of the enemy. Amen and amen."
One of the greatest needs we have today is to be one with God or in unity with Him. Then in our oneness with God we need to find common ground with each other. The church is so divided that the world wants nothing to do with the fighting. Instead we need to fight to be one in His love.
Many a teenager has told me of the hypocrisy that keeps them away from church. Churches are divided because of the color of the new carpet. Oh, we must fight to be one. I have been in churches where God was touching the youth in a mighty rushing wind. The young people were seeing visions, dreams, and one young man heard scripture running through his mind. When the young teen spoke the scriptures he heard he could not stand because he was engulfed by God's presence. The pastor came in the next day and denounced the chapel service. The pastor said it was not a true work of God. The teenagers faces fell and their spirits within were quenched. Sorrow and trouble filled their tender hearts. Dear reader this should not be. We all know that this should never happened. But let us listen to Jesus' words of truth. Because it does happen in churches around the world and ut will happen again and again. But keep your eyes on Jesus and let His earthly example be your focus.
"These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world." (John 16:33) NKJ
