We Are One

There are many things that keep people separated and divided from one another. This is, in part, due to our lack of understanding of the Holy Spirit. As believers, we are to be one with the Spirit and with one another. Ultimately, God is concerned with our relationship with him and with one another. The entire Bible is about relationships. With that said, being on one accord with Body of Christ and with the Holy Spirit is a critical component for Faith.

God is spirit and he is the truth. If he dwells in us, we should work toward being one with that spirit that is in us and to speak the truth that he has given to us. (John 4:24) Knowing this, the Holy Spirit will transform us. Now, these are not just colorful words. This has true meaning. If you believe in God and Jesus Christ as our savior, than you have to allow the Holy Spirit to transform your life. His words will be your words. His deeds will become our actions. When you are transformed, you are reminded of his teachings (John 14:26). Our relationships starts with us.

As for our actual relationships with one another, we are all one in the same Spirit. Given this fact, our interactions with one another should be guided by the Spirit (1 Cor 12:13). Being of one Spirit doesn’t mean that we are uniformed in everything we do and say, but it does mean that we unified in how we relate to one another. We are here to serve one another. We are not here to be selfish or vain. We are here to serve one another in Love (Phil 2:1-4). It doesn’t matter who you are or anyone else, we are all bound together by one Spirit.
