Eph 4:3 endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
Lately it seems that it is so easy to lose peace with all that is going on in the world today. Paul in his epistle to the Ephesians tells them to ... endeavor to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. We as believers need to make a serious and sincere effort to achieve unity in the bond of peace. Every debate or argument seems to challenge that unity by force. Tempting us to choose sides, loose our peace and divide. In Adam Clarke's Commentary on Gal. 5:19-20, the works of the flesh, he defines Seditions (dissensions in NKJV) = divisions into separate factions; parties, whether in the Church or state. In Church or State!! Politics in either church or state will certainly try to divide, but we as Christians must learn to unite, put politics aside and demonstrate our love for each other. John 13:35 "By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another." There is no greater commandment than to love one another. Let's let our love for one another shine in this day and time!!
