Text: 1 Corinthians 3:11
For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 3:1-15
God did not give room for there to be denominations in the body of Christ so that there may be rivalry, no. Rather, all he cares about is that the Gospel of the kingdom be preached all over the earth. It is however so disheartening and counter-productive to find that many people claiming to belong to the body of Christ appear to be laying for themselves other foundation than that laid by Christ. No one can do that. We are all invited to build on the foundation of Christ. Indeed, strife which causes breaking away is not approved of God. A departure to ensure the spread is what He approves like what Paul did. The body of Christ is one. Every member of that body is invited to mind how and what he puts upon that foundation which is Christ Jesus. Running down one denomination so as to poach their members is merchandising and bad. It is discovered that this is predominant because of the love of money and at times fame both of which are borne out of lust. Are you involved in this form of activity? You are rather pitching against Christ in battle. If the body of Christ all over the nations will unite, the kingdom of darkness will fizzle out faster than imagined and many will be loosed from bondage. God expects you to be a pillar to the building of His body and not a (s)cat(t)erpillar. When you do everything to get the church united then are you a pillar. Don’t join in running down any denomination. Rather, pray for them that the Lord may take it over Himself. Unity brings strength. Don’t be a weak link in the body of Christ.
As I become committed to the unity of your Church on earth, Lord please help me and every member of your body to bring unity to the body now in Jesus name.
