Guarding Against Disunity

Constantly, Satan does everything in his power to divide the unity of the members of the body of Christ. First, he tries to divide the believer’s heart (2). Then, he tries to divide the mind. He knows that if a man has two masters or is double-minded, he will be unstable in all of his ways (3).

The devil will always have a counterplan to attack and hinder the unity of God’s people. It is recorded in Acts 4:31-33 that after the priests and Sadducees threatened their preaching, the disciples returned to the upper room to pray. They spoke the Word of God with boldness because they had been with Jesus, and “great grace was upon them all” (verse 33).

God made a provision for this kind of oneness among His people, “now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment” (I Corinthians 1:10).

When we go to the cross as sinners, and ask for God’s divine provision in prayer, it pleases God. It is His desire that we continue in one heart, one soul, one mind, one vision, and one faith, while using the diversities of gifts each one has been given.
