1 Corinthians 1

  1. I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.

Ephesians 4

  1. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.

Romans 6

  1. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his.

Colossians 3

  1. Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
  2. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
  3. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
  4. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace.

Romans 14:1–4 (The Message paraphrase)

1Welcome with open arms fellow believers who don’t see things the way you do. And don’t jump all over them every time they do or say something you don’t agree with—even when it seems that they are strong on opinions but weak in the faith department. Remember, they have their own history to deal with. Treat them gently.

Romans 14:1–4 (The Message paraphrase)

2For instance, a person who has been around for a while might well be convinced that he can eat anything on the table, while another, with a different background, might assume he should only be a vegetarian and eat accordingly. But since both are guests at Christ’s table, wouldn’t it be terribly rude if they fell to criticizing what the other ate or didn’t eat? God, after all, invited them both to the table. Do you have any business crossing people off the guest list or interfering with God’s welcome? If there are corrections to be made or manners to be learned, God can handle that without your help.

I love you, Lord

I love you, Lord, and I lift my voice
To worship you, Oh, my soul rejoice!
Take joy, my King, in what you hear
Let it be a sweet, sweet sound in your ear

We worship you, and we seek your face
We turn to you in this holy place
For you are God, Saviour, Lord and King
May your Spirit move every heart as we sing
