Strength in Numbers "Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven."  (Matthew 18:19)There is no such thing as a lone ranger Christian. Even in Genesis, the Bible tells us that it was not good for man (Adam) to be alone that's why God made him a suitable helper - Eve. We were made for relationship.That is why the best way to grow and see results is when we walk in fellowship with other believers. The benefits…

Celebrate our Commonalities "Now I exhort you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all agree and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be made complete in the same mind and in the same judgment."  (1 Corinthians 1:10) One of my pet peeves is seeing one believer criticizing or judging another church. They loosely throw statements around like how this pastor is a false teacher or how his ministry is a partnership with the devil. They mock churches that grow exponentially and accuse them of selling prosperity as their strategy for growth.…

Power in Unity "So we built the wall and the whole wall was joined together to half its height, for the people had a mind to work." (Nehemiah 4:6)The book of Nehemiah shows how they were able to rebuild the broken walls of Jerusalem in just 52 days. That's about 89 hectares of land that they needed to work on. How could a massive project be done in such a short period of time? The answer is they were laser focused on one common goal. The people were determined to rebuild the broken wall. Their hearts were all united to…

Love Brings Us Together "No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another,God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. " (1 John 4:12) Its one of those days again when I find myself in the middle of refereeing a squabble between my children. One will always say the other sibling started it and he only retaliated. The other one would say that sibling was provoking by making jokes that led him to do such an act. As a parent, I get tired being in the crossfire. Both have a point but, ultimately,…

United Under Persecution "From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work." (Ephesians 4:16)In a conference where there was a session on the persecuted churches in Asia and the Middle East, my eyes were opened to the great heart these local church leaders must have in order to make a stand for Jesus. It is true that where the gospel is shared, persecution follows. But it is also persecution that keeps the churches united. I vividly recall how the speaker said, "when we…

Appreciate Our Differences "For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function." (Romans 12:4) Every church is unique. There are some that focus on social justice, others on education. There are some who are house churches while others are community churches. There are those that have the heart for the poor while others are in the business sectors. Wherever God has placed you, that is your unique assignment. No one can ever say that one is better than the other. Forcing one church to look exactly like…

The Unity of the Church "I, therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is overall and through all and in all." (Ephesians 4:1-4)Kingdom mentality —…
