Raising Giant Slayers In Unity We Stand

In Unity We Stand by Varn Brown, Sr.

In a war we all stand together and fight as one? We fight as a undivided unit to defeat the enemy. The enemy knows that he must defeat the strong man to possess his house. In the kingdom of God, we are the strong man in our house.

You do know that a house divided against itself will not stand? That is the reason why the enemy wants to cause division in the house of God. It's sad to say but many times he accomplishes it, dividing us in the body of Christ. But we must get better. We must love each other more and stand in unity.

Picture of Unity

Picture with me, two forces standing against each other and a big line drawn between them both. We know that each force will bring the best warriors that they have to the front lines to fight. In this battle they both fight for their country. Whoever wins, win all and whoever loses, loses all.

Now think about this. Do you think there will be any discord between each other or any of the soldiers on either side? I think not. And the reason I say this, there is too much at stake. The cost is too much to pay for a loss. This is why we are taking casualties in the body of Christ because everyone is not in their place and in unity.

Jesus drew a very clear picture of what happens when a house is divided against itself. All of the gospels give an account of this event. But here's how the Doctor Luke describes it:

A House Divided

Others, to test Him, were demanding of Him a sign from heaven. But He knew their thoughts and said to them, "Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and a house divided against itself falls. "If Satan also is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand? For you say that I cast out demons by Beelzebul.… Luke 11:16-18

When we fight among ourselves, lie on each other, backbite against each other, not have each other backs, holding grudges, taking offense and keeping unforgiveness toward one another, the enemy uses it. Unity of the body is the most important.

Do you see my point? How many times have you seen in the Old Testament battles between the Israelites and the enemies of the Lord? Confusion would come on the enemy's camp and they would begin to turn on themselves and be defeated, actually defeating themselves. I want you to know that's how we look as the body of Christ when we allow the enemy to cause us to fight and destroy ourselves.

No Room For Discord

There should be unity in the body of Christ. There is no room for envy, jealousy, strife or being competitive with one another. If we do, we may be defeated by the enemy more easily. Don’t forget a house divided against itself will not stand.

Some things are worth repeating. There must be unity among ourselves in the body of Christ or we won't be able to withstand the evil one. This is the very reason why the Lord has commanded us to, love ye one another. Because when we "Agape Love" one another we put on Christ.

Building Unity In The Body Of Christ,

Rev. Varn E Brown, Sr.
