THE WINDS OF UNITY

text size A A A

CHRISTIAN ONENESS

We are one. That is not a hope but a fact for just as God is one and the body of Christ is one,so we cannot be anything other than one. That oneness is in Christ. We can never be one in ourselves or between ourselves for that is not our nature. Our nature is to be divided and opposed to one another. Oneness is much more than agreement. Agreement does not create oneness. If I think what you think we agree and that is all. But if I am one in Christ and you are one in Christ, then although we are two different persons, we are one in him. The oneness is being in Christ. For in him the whole universe is to be brought together with him as head. This oneness is not an intellectual nod of the head. It is seeing clearly and spiritually that Christ is Lord and no other. We walk by faith not by sight. Faith sees beyond the 'I believe this or I think that type of unity'.That is a very fragile and weak source of oneness. The source that truly unites one to another believer is faith in Christ as the source and only source of our oneness. You can't perhaps put that down on paper but then the good news is that we don't have to be legalistic or judgmental.
