What would happen if two Christians who were not getting along came together and agreed about the necessity for unity and attempted to unite on the basis of their soul. A few days after they had made a pact in the capacity they had in their soul, they would privately interpret what one another said or meant. They would react in their soul because they had no capacity for God, but a tremendous capacity for themselves.
The Church at Corinth had approximately 100 families when Paul left on his evangelical tour. Church history says, however, that their Church dwindled down to three families. Why? This Church had all the gifts. These gifts were genuine and real, but the problem was that unity was lacking because there was no capacity for God.
The devil wants us to follow God after our soul. It is possible that we could have all the gifts, as precious as they are, but lack the unity that comes only because of God. God is one, though three persons-the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Son was one with God while He was in His humanity because He had a capacity for the Father.
Gifts do not reveal oneness; only God is true unity. Anything outside of God never will be one. Our gifts complement the Body as we live in our capacity for God. The Holy Spirit makes us one with God and one another, just as Jesus was one with the Father. "He that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit" (1 Corinthians 6:17).
