Division

Matthew 12:25 25 Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand.  (NIV)

 Our country is divided against itself.  Our churches have division within them.  Families have division within them.  This is seen in the divorce rate.  There is only one thing that can unite any of them.  That one thing is the love of God.  That love is connected to us though prayer.  Love is only realized through communication.  We tend to try to solve divisions in our own finite wisdom.  Divisions can only be solved through God’s wisdom and love.  Our part is to pray and to ask His Holy Spirit to enable us to show and share God’s love.  We don’t have to agree with each other on the interpretation of various aspects of scripture.  Scripture is a living word and says different things to each of us at different times according to our circumstances, relationship with God and openness to understand.  We only need agree that Jesus is the Son of God come in flesh of man to demonstrate God’s love and take our sins away; to reunite us with God, the Father though His death and resurrection.  Let us demonstrate His love and share His love.
