Here's a thought for your day.
I Will Be a Unifying Christian.
I give you a new command: Love one another. Just as I have loved you, you must also love one another. By this all people will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34-35 I will be a unifying Christian. There are times when I must take a stand for God and His Word, but I can do so in such a way that is charitable and non-combative. My tone can be helpful, and my demeanor can be Christ-like.
I will be a unifying Christian. I will seek to build up before I tear down, to encourage before criticizing.
I will learn that my words can be a source of great harm, or they can be a source of encouragement and joy.
I will be a unifying Christian. That means that my needs and preferences will be last, and I will seek to serve others with joy. In all that I do, I will strive to be selfless in my church and in my life.
My priority will be to build up the body of Christ. I will be a unifying Christian. I will pray each day that I show Christ’s love more fully, to be compassionate and caring for those in need. In Christ’s strength, I will be a voice of hope
to so many who believe this world is cruel and hopeless. I will be a unifying Christian. I know many are watching me.
They know I am believer in Christ, a Christian. My words and actions are my witness. The world will know we are Christians by our love. I will be a unifying Christian.
Such is my hope. My goal. My prayer.
Until the Whole world Hears,
