Message of the Day: Be United in Love. Agree to Disagree!
“Now may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus, that you may with one mind and one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Romans 15:5-6, NKJV)
“To be like-minded” is to think in unity – in this context, it is a unity of love, not of complete agreement.
Throughout the Scriptures, as well as through the example of Jesus Christ, God encourages believers to live in harmony with one another. Not that all of us should arrive at the same conclusions but that we might agree to disagree and glorify God with one voice. Let our mind and mouth give glory to His name!
