Just as the whole of the Law is summed up in love, so the whole of human relationships is fulfilled in love. This applies to every Christian and to every area of life.


This love is evidenced by a unity of mind. Unity does not mean uniformity; it means cooperation in the midst of diversity. The members of the body work together in unity, even though they are all different. Christians may differ on how things are to be done, but they must agree on what is to be done and why. A man criticized D. L. Moody’s methods of evangelism, and Moody said, “Well, I’m always ready for improvement. What are your
methods?” The man confessed that he had none. “Then I’ll stick to my own,” said Moody.


Whatever methods we use, we must seek to honor Christ, win the lost, and build the church. Some methods are definitely not scriptural, but there is plenty of room for variety in the church.


The Bible says: “If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from His love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose” (Philippians 2:1-2, NIV).


Also read: Philippians 2:1-11; Ephesians 4:1-6.


Action assignment: Are you at odds with some brother or sister in Christ? Spend time praying for that person and your relationship.
