Church Unity

…that there should be no schism in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another.
1 Corinthians 12:25, NKJV

In Paul’s day, the church in Corinth was divided over leadership, false teaching, disorderly worship, sexual immorality, lawsuits among Christians, and the influence of pagan rituals in their area, but the greatest problem they faced was a simple lack of love for one another.

At mealtimes, they began eating before all the guests had arrived. Some selfishly indulged in eating meat ceremonially sacrificed to pagan idols, even as weaker brothers and sisters delivered out of that very paganism stood by watching. There was a great deal of boasting.

While a church is more of a family than a business, even families experience the occasional feud. If your fellowship with someone at church is broken, never allow it to split the Body. Heal your wounds. Show you care. Work together. Realize you are both on the same team.
