Be of One Mind

 

(Philippians 2:2) “Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.”

(1 Corinthians 1:10) “Brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus the Messiah, I urge all of you to be in agreement and not to have divisions among you, so that you may be perfectly united in your understanding and opinions.”

(Matthew 12:25) “He knew what they were thinking and told them, ‘Every kingdom divided against itself is destroyed, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand.’”

 

 

Being of one mind and with a common goal with someone else is probably one of the hardest things to achieve. We all come from different backgrounds, have different fears, and have such a different value system for what is essential in life that having a common and unshakable ground on which to stand seems impossible.

That is why it is so important to have these things panned out before getting into a long-term covenant like a business partnership, academic goal, or even marriage. However, we seem to be experts in uniting to do mischief and indulge in sinful pleasures. That is why it takes God’s supernatural intervention in our lives to come into agreement to keep His commandments.

Planning a future with someone without first consulting God is total insanity as only God can be the constant thing in your life. God does not change with time, He does not get tired, He does not give up on us, and His promises are all true. Many young couples get into marriage based only on looks and emotional feelings of love. I guarantee you that neither is a good foundation, as they change with time due to our bodies aging and our priorities changing. Love has to be a decision, not a feeling. Jesus loves us, no matter how much we hate Him or reject Him.

Even strangers miraculously become of one mind when they have a common enemy or a common burden to carry. This was the case for the Tower of Babel, where even God was concerned about all mankind could achieve in evil thoughts if they continued as united as they were. This key to having unity for Christians is not only to have a common enemy (Satan) but to have a common authority under whom all submit (Christ). By having Jesus and His will and moral standards as the center of all decisions, desires, goals, and commitments, we can be assured peace, harmony, and victory in every area of our lives.

When there is no unity under God you will be living in the tower of Babel, where even if they were united to defy God, they eventually did not understand each other and everyone went their own way. But when we unite under God, it is like the day of Pentecost. Everyone spoke in a different language unknown to them through the power of the Holy Spirit, but all heard God being glorified in unity.

 

 

My grandfather always used to say “Let one decide, and let the other obey.” This definitely takes God’s supernatural change in our lives.
