EDIFICATION BY UNIFICATION- By Robert E. Hanna


Scripture Reading: Romans 14:19

The fruits of unity are many and varied, and all are  profitable. (We speak of unity under the law of righteousness;  even the devil and his legions can be unified!) One of the great   is that of mutual enlightenment. When the minds of  the saints are in synchronization, the truths of God are  magnified; and He is glorified. Our apostle gives us many  ground rules for the sharing of the faith. "Let the Word of  Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and  admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual  songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord"  (Colossians 3:16).

Most notable in the epistles of Paul (and much to the  chagrin of legalists and religionists) is the lack of any  instruction whatsoever in liturgical and/or ecclesiastical,  ritualistic exhibitions. His exhortations to the Church, the  Body of Christ, are in the light of praising and exalting Jesus  Christ by way of expression from the heart, without benefit of  equipment or paraphernalia. Fellow shipping in love, sharing  burdens, preaching, teaching, evangelizing-these are the  Apostle's desire for the members of the Body to recognize as  their saintly responsibilities.

How simple are the principles of unity in the Spirit! Note  that we did not say easy-but simple. We are not told that a  life pleasing to God will be other than difficult, but we are  given clear and unmistakable instructions. "Whatsoever ye  do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; knowing  that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance"  (Colossians 3:23-24).




How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
