The Doorpost: How are we walking?
Mike Miller · Nov 01, 2015
When we have differences with other believers, we can sometimes respond in selfishness and impatience. We can quickly enter into conflict, and even be almost eager for it, possibly telling ourselves that we must do this to stand for truth and to obey God.
We certainly need to be faithful to Jesus Christ and to His Word, but we should do this in a manner that is worthy of our calling from Him. We should follow His teaching and example of humility, gentleness, and patience, even loving our enemies. And if we are to love our enemies, how much more should we love our fellow believers who are members with us in one body, with one hope, one Spirit, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father?
Are you and I walking in a manner worthy of the calling to which we have been called with fellow members of the Body? Are we eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace?
For the Kingdom,
