"Unity"

Within the Godhead there is unity. Total and complete. No schism no discord. All is pure and holy. All the peace, all is as one, United in purpose.

But each part of the Three -in -One has a different function and part of the Unity. God, Abba, Father is in heaven, Jesus Jeshua is in heaven and on earth and Holy Spirit is dwelling within God's people in heaven and on earth. They are the same in character, understanding and total wisdom but different in function, in the how they express their unity. They are not clones of each other. They are all the same and different. A paradox. United in purpose but different in function.

So to the Body of Christ. We are united in our purpose but different in function, We are not meant to be all the same. We serve our God in many different and special ways, unique to our own special and particular talents. Each member is designed to be individual but blend together as a whole. United in purpose to serve God

So too the groups of believers. They are meant to be united in purpose but differing in function. The how and the ways each group serves is unique to the mix of the individuals involved. No two snowflakes are the same , no two individual are the same species, no two members of the Body.

Our God is a Master of the individual - each made specially, specifically and uniquely individual. So as the body we will see, think, and express ourselves in a unique and special way. It is the way we are designed to be. And God loves that about us.

It is to His glory that we, though each unique and specially individual, are able to work and function together as a unified whole. This is the unity of the brethren dwelling together in peace and sameness of purpose, while still being uniquely individual within the unity. The same with the Godhead, unified purpose but individually different in function.

Unfortunately, this is not what we see happening within the Body of Christ in the world. There is little agreement between members, disunity and dis-function. But surely the truth is that if we are baptised, Spirit filled Believers of Jesus Jeshua, then the sum of our sameness vastly outweighs the difference of our uniqueness.

We are the family of God - born again into His Kingdom and His purpose. We are the privileged Children of God, a peculiar People called and chosen of Him. If we do not always totally agree on all things - does it matter? We agree on the fundamentals of the I AM, His salvation message and little by little we are discovering the fundamental truth of God. We are growing, changing from glory to glory, transforming into perfect vessels of gold that God has ordained that we are - fit for His purpose.

The sum of our similarities far exceeds the sum of our differences. We belong together, celebrating our wonderful God rejoicing in our sameness and unity of identity in God but able to appreciate the unique of each individual.

This a mature attitude and mindset. One that is compatible with God. This is a mindset of understanding unity, yet also accepting and celebrating uniqueness. Thinking as God does.

 

Eph 4: 4-6 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all....11-13 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers,  to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.....15-16 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.
